Westerberg: Millie Hamner for state rep
October 16, 2012
As a Colorado resident and educator for more than 30 years, I encourage voters to cast their ballot for Millie Hamner, state representative. I have observed Millie’s skills as a listener, a problem-solver and a consensus-builder to forge positive relationships and find collaborative solutions. While serving as a freshman legislator, Millie shaped crucial legislation improving travel on I-70, streamlining the teacher license renewal process, improving K-3 literacy rates and creating incentives for the use of beetle-kill trees for biomass energy. Millie knows that education is the best economic driver we have. With her experience in education, understanding of mountain communities’ economies and an appreciation of our unique mountain lifestyle, Millie has done an exemplary job representing our interests during the last two years. Let’s keep moving forward with Millie Hamner as our state representative.
