Letter: A Republican vote for Udall

To the Editor:

I am a registered Republican but I am voting for what serves Grand County best by voting for Mark Udall for Senate in this year’s election.

Mark is a frequent visitor to our county unlike typical politicians who show up in election years. In Mark’s tenure he has taken several political stances to fight for the headwaters of the Colorado River and the environment in Grand County. I don’t interpret this as liberal but rather an intelligent far-sighted view on what drives our local economy.

If we are going to have a vital tourist industry for our grandchildren to inherit, we will need allies with a proven track record like Mark Udall to fight for that future. Tourism is the main economy of Grand County, and our environment is the drive engine for the tourist industry. So I’m voting for Grand County in this election by voting for Mark Udall. I hope that you do the same.

Kirk Klancke
