Support Bob French

Michael CraigBreckenridge

Bob French was appointed in July to the Summit County Board of County Commissioners. As a participant in the appointment process, I remember that one of the overriding concerns of many in our county was the ability of the new commissioner to continue the cooperation and civility that has been a hallmark of past boards.Last week, Bob French proved himself in that regard, when he proposed that the Board of County Commissioners consider a resolution supporting the education of the young women and men in our county by supporting the education initiatives that will be on Summit County ballot this November.Seeing that one of the commissioners would not support such a resolution, Bob French withdrew his suggestion rather than split the commissioners 2-to-1. I applaud him both for supporting the education of youngsters in Summit County and for not putting one of his commissioners in the position of publicly voting against the education initiative.Bob French has proven that he is a tactful and thoughtful commissioner. French has proven that he is capable of putting the good of the county ahead of his own personal beliefs. He has proven that he is a capable replacement for Gary Lindstrom, who now sits as our Colorado State Representative. I continue to support Bob French and believe he will work to make Summit County a great county commissioner.
