I find this a strange election — strange because there are so many great choices for council — we can hardly lose as a community regardless of the results.
That said, I would encourage you to consider Dwayne Romero as one of your choices. Dwayne’s leadership skills stand out — he has demonstrated his ability to get things done, often under extremely difficult circumstances. I worked for Dwayne for almost 10 years. I can vouch for his integrity, his compassion and his genuine commitment to the well-being of this community. Besides being so smart that it is scary, Dwayne has a built-in sense of civic duty that is demonstrated by his acceptance of one community obligation after another — wherever he can help. So he juggles and makes it all work. You can ask his kids if I am right — they think he is the greatest dad in the world.
In addition to skillful leadership, I have witnessed Dwayne’s ability to find solutions repeatedly. When facing what appears to be insurmountable odds, he will sort it all out and come up with an idea that works. He is practical about this, not letting polarization prevent progress. We could use him in the beltway.
When Dwayne answered a call to serve from the governor of Colorado, he produced an end product that can make us all proud. The economic plan, “A Blueprint for Colorado,” was the end result — a detailed plan that is currently being implemented “from the ground up” across the state.
I think there are some individuals who are just destined to lead. I think Dwayne Romero is one of them. I hope you will give him your vote.
