What inspires Bob to run for Mesa County Commissioner?
“I am a fiscal conservative and life-long Republican. I am a Grand Valley resident for 48 years and an entrepreneur and successful businessman since 1992.
Everyday, I face and solve all sorts of problems associated with money, budgeting, deficits, customer relations, employee hiring/retention, trends, marketing, communications, emergencies, health, safety, planning, government regulation/compliance, and much more.
For politicians, it’s easy to say that “Government is not the solution.”
But, it’s impossible to find real-life solutions unless you have experience solving problems without the government’s help.
We need more elected representatives who have real-life business experience.
We need fewer career politicians whose life experience does not include earning a profit nor making a living without receiving a government paycheck.
It’s time for new leadership in Mesa County that represents the working business folks:
who know what it is like to make payroll
sacrifice their own paycheck to pay their employees
face the burden of government regulation
make-do with less to put a roof over their family’s head
