Letter: Let’s re-elect George Marlin


George Marlin has served Clear Creek County well and should be re-elected as County Commissioner. 

George has lived here his entire lifeand has dedicated his time, energy, and passion toward the issues and priorities that improve the lives of the people who live here and the spaces we call home. 

He understands the nuances of the various communities within the county, and he’s made consistent, authentic and productive community engagement part of his work ethic – every day and with everyone. 

George has a proven track record as a valued public servant. He left his place of employment in order to dedicate all of his time to this community, attending every meeting, and getting the hard work done intentionally, collaboratively, and with purpose. 

During his first term, George worked with other local officials, businesses, nonprofits, and citizens to help bring the community much-needed Covid relief funding from state and federal investments. 

He has been instrumental in bringing the county and municipalities together to confront housing costsfor our community – understanding that families need to be able both to live AND work here. 

In addition, Georgehas made mental health a focus. He helped ensure a study was conducted using federal dollars, which is leading to new policies and programming to help our citizens and making us eligible for new funding opportunities. 

George is committed to county employees as well, setting in motion an effort to re-set wage scales to better match surrounding counties and help us retain valued staff. 

George a prime example of how local government should work – problems don’t solve themselves; communities need representatives like him who understand how to engage stakeholders, craft policy solutions, and pursue the funding necessary to put them into action. 

As a local-control state, we are fortunate to have a public servant like George – you see him everywhere, when he sees an issue, (and he sees a lot!) he’ll be there, with sleeves rolled up, listening, engaging, and supporting inclusive and constructive conversation. George is not about Ideology; he is about community.  

We live in atruly special place, and to keep it that way, we need to support elected officials who reflect our values, understand our issues, and elevate our priorities. In addition, it is more important than ever that we all participate in every election.

Please join me in re-electing George Marlin as Clear Creek County Commissioner. 

Liz Houston, Evergreen
