Holbert is the right choice

I am writing to declare my unequivocal support of Diane Holbert for Douglas County commissioner. I have known Ms. Holbert for five years. She and I serve together in a Christian organization. All of those in leadership in this organization commit a great deal of time serving others and receive no pay for their efforts.

My support is based on two issues that I see sorely missing from politics today: integrity and selfless service.

Sadly, the virtue of integrity has become optional in our political system. We see the fruition of this today with problems not only with our elected officials, but also with those in the judicial and law enforcement areas.

When you work closely with someone for five years, you know whether or not they have integrity. I know that Ms. Holbert does.

The next virtue that I see in Ms. Holbert is that of a selfless servant. Her life is incredibly full: a mother of children still at home; previous treasurer of Douglas County; devoted wife to a husband who serves in the Colorado Senate. Yet, in spite of all of these demands, she still finds the time to lead a group of women in the Christian organization in which we both participate. Our political system works best when it is composed of servant leaders. Again, I know that Diane Holbert has the heart of a servant.

Integrity and selfless service. What else could one ask for in a county commissioner?
