Nancy Reif: Jeanne Nicholson for state senator

State Senate District 16, including Summit County, is fortunate to have such a qualified candidate in Jeanne Nicholson.

Jeanne Nicholson has a master’s degree in community nursing and more than 30 years of experience serving communities at the grassroots level – first as a community nurse in both Summit and Gilpin counties, and now as a Gilpin County Commissioner.

I have known Nicholson for more than 10 years. We have spent many summer afternoons sailing Lake Dillon together and enjoying great conversation at the Frisco Marina where topics often turned toward our common interest in children and education. In a time when revenue is declining and budgets are being slashed, Jeanne Nicholson will work to ensure that education funding remains a priority. She will work to create and preserve jobs that help people.

I know Jeanne Nicholson’s experience, deep understanding of local issues, and determination will serve us and the children of Summit County well in the state legislature.
