A Message from Dan Williams
Dan Williams, candidate for Teller County Commissioner, District 1 released the following message ahead of the Teller County Assembly:
I wanted to thank you again for volunteering to participate in this year’s virtual assembly as a delegate.
Our Teller County GOP did an incredible job in its flexibility by creating an online delegate voting process. As many of you have been receiving multiple emails and confirmation phone calls related to this, I have not wanted to add to that burden until now.
Since the order was received from our Governor a few weeks ago to remain at home, I wanted you to know that I, along with other members of our local government, have been part of the Crisis Response Force for Teller County in the Teller County Emergency Operations Center. In that role, I can tell you first hand that Teller County, our incorporated cities, and multiple agencies are doing everything we can to keep you as safe as possible. In the coming days official media releases will show you some of the incredible work that has been done to protect you and your families. We now have nearly 500 volunteers as well who are sewing masks and gowns, serving on the posse and standing by for work assignments I am so very proud of our County and our people who continue to serve others during this crisis.
Sadly, I have also been informed by some of you that an individual may have inappropriately obtained the delegate list from a candidate and persisted in his personal false attacks against me. I understand some of you received calls or emails from this person. While our commissioners made the decision that he did not agree with, I stand by them fully. Teller County does not bend the rules for the rich and powerful, the rules apply to all of us. If we don’t like them, we change them, for all of us…I find it disturbing that when so many of us are doing everything we can to take care of others and our community, that this individual feels it appropriate to continue a false personal attack to try and change the political calculus. That said, I have faith in each of you and know that you will separate fact from fiction and that you will help our Party select the best candidate possible for District 1. I remain available to each of you via telephone at 912-247-1258 or via my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Friday 3 April you will have an opportunity to watch the speeches of my nominators and my own speech. I would encourage you to watch all candidate speeches as you would at any assembly prior to making your selection. Saturday morning, April 4th, you will have the opportunity to cast your vote between 9 AM and 7 PM.
This is an historical time and an incredibly important election for Teller County and you will personally help to chart Teller County’s future. We will need strong and experienced leadership to fully recover from this challenge…I will be ready on day one.
Thank you for your willingness to help us and our Party. May God bless each and every one of you and keep you safe.
