Matt has really impressed me with his depth of knowledge about county issues - and he has ideas for Solutions! We need a younger person as CC who understands first hand the challenges young people face in building careers and homes here.

We need the type of fresh young perspective in government that Matt represents. Matt Salka was a successful Mayor for the town of Bayfield working on several improvements and important technology upgrades for the town. Matt is a rising star in the political landscape and I am pleased to endorse him for La Plata County Commissioner.

Matt has shown, throughout his time as Mayor of Bayfield and a small business owner himself, that when he says he's going to do something for the community he will stand by his word. I also have been able to give recycling access to Ignacio and Forest Lakes. Matt sees the need for growth and giving back to the residents of La Plata County. I am confident that with Matt Salka as La Plata County Commissioner my company will continue to grow in this community, as well as other small businesses.
