Green Party candidate thanks voters

Tom Castrigno, Ophir Mountain

On behalf of the Summit Greens, I would like to thank the 3,309 people who cast their votes for Green Party candidate Tom Castrigno in the District 2 County Commissioner race. Your support and confidence means so much.Green values are about so much more than just the environment. Personal responsibility, supporting small business and embracing diversity are just a few other key values.To those of you who have gotten involved in local issues for the first time, congratulations for participating. To those of you who have long been involved and believe that new ideas and vision are needed for Summit County, stay with it.Transportation and housing are two issues in particular that need new approaches. Policy makers who do not experience these issues directly will never be able to create solutions that work in practice and not just on paper. Citizen input is desperately needed in so many ways. Persist in making your voice heard.I ask that you, who have been elected to office, open your minds and open your hearts to truly address the needs of all citizens in our community. This human resource is the infrastructure that will be needed to support the future economy of Summit County. Mind the locals, and tourism will take care of itself. When we all work together, there is no limit to the abundance and fulfillment we can achieve.Thanks again. Here’s to keeping dreams alive.
