Following is a press release from the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS, which interviewed candidates for El Paso County commissioner and decided to endorse the three incumbents: Amy Lathen, Sallie Clark and Dennis Hisey.
The Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® (PPAR) announced its endorsement for El Paso County Commissioners in the upcoming primary election which will take place by mail-in ballot in June.
PPAR interviewed candidates and based their decision on a series of questions about private property rights, taxation policies, water rights and usage, land use, regulatory oversight, as well as other topics that affect the quality of life in our communities and the ability of those in the real estate industry to do business. In addition, the group requested they share short and long term economic challenges and solutions as well as how they would continue to foster working relationships with the city and other municipalities within the Pikes Peak region.
Commissioner candidate endorsements:
Amy Lathen, District 2
Sallie Clark, District 3
Dennis Hisey, District 4
“The Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® is please to endorse Amy Lathen, Sallie Clark and Dennis Hisey for El Paso County Commissioner,” said Tony Rose, Chairman of the Board of PPAR. “Each of the candidates demonstrated the needed knowledge, experience and pro-business attitude that our association looks for in our local public servants. The work they have done to reduce burdensome regulations, streamline the planning process and manage the County’s multi-million dollar budget while maintaining excellent transportation and public safety services, especially in these challenging economic times, has been exemplary.“
