Comment by Wendy Koenig, Mayor of Estes Park, regarding the April 5, 2022 Municipal Election of Estes Park, Colorado.
“Elections are the primary way through which the townspeople of Estes Park deliver general feedback to their town government and give specific instructions to their individual representatives. A heartfelt thanks to all candidates who stepped up to serve. Although each of the six candidates was well qualified, the people have spoken, and victory has been awarded to three. I look forward to working with them to provide for the common good of our townspeople, and encourage the others to seek ways to contribute to that good as well.”
