When I was a new mother and first-time business owner, my husband and I were fortunate to know and hire Rebecca Samulski. Although she was not yet an adult, we could trust her with our customers and baby. We knew she was going places. And she did, right here in Montezuma County. Even when she went off to college she would return in the summers to help our business grow. We are such a small part of all the accomplishments in her life, yet she made such a huge difference in ours.
Rebecca and I share some similar roots, including growing up in Mesa Verde National Park, where our parents worked; attending Mancos High School; and serving in the wildland fire profession. However, there are some areas where she just plain stands out. Becca is an effective leader, calming presence, excellent listener, wise beyond her years and, most importantly, makes decisions to benefit the whole versus sticking to hotheaded principles.
This is why I am asking you to vote for Rebecca Samulski for Montezuma County commissioner. Rebecca is still going places, and our community will benefit if we help her make a difference right here in the place that we all love.
