Daily Sentinel: Hurd wants to make impact, not a name for himself

Originally published on gjsentinel.com.

I am writing to express my wholehearted endorsement of Jeff Hurd as the candidate for Congressional District 3 in Colorado. Jeff’s deep roots in our state, coupled with his commitment to family, community and the betterment of rural Colorado, make him an outstanding choice to represent us in Congress.

Jeff’s track record demonstrates a steadfast dedication to the values that matter most to our community. His passion for economic growth, job creation and a solid national defense aligns with the core principles of our founding fathers. Moreover, his experience in local governance and community involvement has equipped him with the skills necessary to navigate our district’s complex issues.

Jeff’s extensive background as an attorney, including work in New York City on complex legal matters, brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. His decision to return to western Colorado in 2014 with his wife, Barbora, underscores his dedication to raising his family in the same community that shaped his values.

In his professional life, Jeff has demonstrated a strong commitment to rural Colorado, advocating for rural hospital districts, fire districts, school districts and broadband internet providers. Notably, his work with electric cooperatives, vital components of our rural communities, showcases his understanding of the unique challenges faced by these entities.

What sets Jeff apart is not just his impressive background, but his genuine passion for policy and delivering tangible results for our communities and working families. He is not content with merely holding a title; instead, he is focused on making a real impact and ensuring that rural Colorado not only survives but thrives.

Jeff Hurd’s leadership within the Grand Junction business community and the broader Colorado legal community further illustrates his ability to connect with diverse stakeholders and navigate complex issues. His collaborative approach and dedication to service make him the type of Congressman we need in these challenging times.

In today’s polarized political landscape, Republicans must recognize the downfall of letting perfect be the enemy of the good. Ronald Reagan said it best when he said, “The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally — not a 20 percent traitor.” We need to remember we are electing a representative of our values to represent us in Congress. Jeff Hurd embodies our values and commitment to bridging the gaps and finding common ground for the betterment of our district and nation.

In supporting Jeff Hurd, we are rallying behind a candidate who prioritizes action over rhetoric, someone who genuinely cares about the well-being of our communities and the prosperity of rural Colorado. I encourage you to join me in endorsing Jeff Hurd for Congressional District 3 — a dedicated leader ready to bring positive change to our beloved state.
