Grand County Assessor Tom Weydert has announced that he will run for Grand County Commissioner.

“I am and continue to be disappointed with the current financial situation and of the leadership of Grand County,” Weydert wrote in a letter to caucus attendees that was sent to local media.

Weydert will be running for the District 2 seat, currently held by Merrit Linke.

In his letter, Weydert lays out a number platform goals including improving the county’s financial position, “bringing civility back” to discussions and increasing collaboration between the public and private sectors.

Weydert was elected to the assessors office in 2006 and has lived in Grand County for 29 years, the letter states.

“As a long time resident, I am knowledgeable of the many concerns that face all of us in Grand County, and I am confident that together we can find the solutions,” Weydert writes.
