Elise Jones, Candidate for County Commission for Boulder County -- Meet & Greet
06/02/2012 1:00 pm
06/02/2012 3:00 pm
It’s time to get involved—and have your voice heard! The election to decide who sits on the next County Commission for Boulder County is rapidly approaching. Come learn more about this critical election by meeting candidate Elise Jones at the Boulder Book Store on Saturday, June 2, from 1-3pm.
Your vote is crucial because County Commissioners play a powerful role in ensuring the quality of life here in Boulder County. The three Commissioners:
· Oversee the County’s $320 million budget and nine departments (Land Use, Parks & Open Space, Transportation, Administrative Services, Housing & Human Services, Community Services, Budget, County Attorney and Commissioners’ Office).
· Manage the social services safety net that provides assistance to those in need.
· Decide what open space to buy and how it’s managed.
· Make land use and development policy and decisions in unincorporated Boulder County.
Current County Commissioner Will Toor is termed out this year, and the election to fill his seat will be decided in the Democratic primary on June 26 (there are no Republicans in the race). This will be an all-mail ballot primary—ballots will arrive around June 6. To vote in the primary, you must be registered to vote by May 29. (If you’re registered but not as a Democrat, May 25 is the last day to affiliate or change your party affiliation to vote in the primary -- you can change it back afterwards if you like.)
County Commissioner Candidate Elise Jones will be at the Boulder Book Store from 1-3pm on Saturday, June 2nd, to answer your questions about what a County Commissioner does, and talk about key issues in the County and how she would address them.
