Letter: Two candidates who will make Evergreen better

Posted

Evergreen can stand still, or keep getting better. In the upcoming election for the Evergreen Park & Recreation District, I know of two candidates who will keep making it better.

One is Peter Eggers, who knows parks and recreation well because he has served in the past — for 16 years— on the EPRD board. It was with his leadership that Evergreen got better, from building the Lake House to laying out Buchanan Park, from creating the turf field at Marshdale Elementary School to the grass playing fields at Bergen Valley.

The other is Betsy Hays, who knows it equally well because her family has been involved in every sport EPRD oversees. But I know her in a different context. As president, she took the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce to a new and better level. Now, as head of fundraising for Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice, she has helped it successfully navigate through the challenging and costly period of the pandemic.

I hope you’ll write down these two names and endorse them on your ballot. They are both candidates who care about the lives we lead. That’s why I am convinced they will keep making our lives better. 

Greg Dobbs, Evergreen
