Letters to the Editor

Quotes to vote

“We in America do not have a government by the majority — we have government by the majority who participate...All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”  ~ Thomas Jefferson Former House Speaker Paul Ryan advised voters to vote their conscience in the 2016 election. Election turnout has been below 100%. The 2024 election will determine the health of America’s government. Consider the aftermath of the 2020 election. On Jan. 6, 2021, our elected officials held to their constitutional duties, thwarting off a tyrannous foothold. Our constitution has been defined as a living document. Our...

Jason Ensz for commissioner

To the community, My name is Jason Ensz. I’m running for Saguache County Commissioner district two. I have been a resident of Saguache County for nine years and a resident of the San Luis Valley since 1995.  My family and I consider Saguache County and the San Luis Valley to be our permanent home. I have been married for 10 years. My wife and I have three beautiful children. I am certain that we need to be concerned about our children’s future. I am a dedicated farmer and I will always do my best to preserve our farming and ranching communities....

Weir for commissioner

Editor’s note: Some of the claims in this letter regarding Constitutional rights are the opinion of the writer and not that of The Crestone Eagle.  Marcus Weir hopes to bring much needed balance to the Saguache County Board of Commissioners and a common-sense approach to tough issues we all face. Weir has been a resident of the Baca Grande since 2019. He is running on a Republican platform of a “common sense approach to serious issues affecting all the citizens of Saguache County.” “The last four years have brought many changes and caused real concerns for the residents of our county,”...

Kinney offers congrats

To the community, Congratulations to Thomas McCracken and all the other candidates who made it onto the November ballot. “Winning” these days comes in many forms. I am beyond grateful to have met so many hundreds of new people and to have heard so many authentic stories about people’s experiences here in the valley. These connections and this deeper understanding of my neighbors’ needs and concerns have forever changed who I am, and who I strive to be. Thank you all for being here, at whatever level you are able to engage or witness. This new perspective on my community...

I would encourage voters in the Democratic Primary to vote for Adam Kinney. Adam has previously served as a trustee for the Town of Crestone. I have visited with Adam and I appreciate his dedication to the valley and to Saguache County.   He...

McCracken for commissioner

Editor’s note: The primary election is June 25. The Eagle will post results to The Crestone Eagle website as soon as they are available. This is the last set of endorsements received by press time presented in alternating endorsements.  To the editor: In April, the Saguache County Board of Commissioners adopted regulations that allow a joint planning board to review water export applications from any jurisdiction in the Rio Grande Basin. This is part of an intergovernmental agreement with the other counties and municipalities in the San Luis Valley and is a huge victory in safeguarding the valley’s water.  Our current Saguache...
