Williams Releases Podcast on Rural Teller County
Dan Williams, Candidate for Teller County Commissioner, District 1, released his 7th podcast. This podcast addresses the future of Rural Teller County.
"Teller County is changing as more and more people move from the Front Range into Teller County. This growth brings opportunities and challenges," Williams commented. "There will be a natural tension between those who want more development and those who want to preserve what we have and what makes our home especially unique.
"Now, we can simply turn our heads the other way and say that government has no role in this discussion, or we can strike a healthy balance between the opportunity offered by this growth and the desire to maintain our natural beauty.
"What kind of development do we want? Where? And how much? Have we decided what will be lost due to this development, and are we ok with that?
"I welcome that discussion, and will support what we, the citizenry decide, but let there be no doubt: there will be disagreement among good people who would otherwise agree on so many other issues. It takes a leader to help blend and balance these divergent perspectives.
"Simply ignoring the issue under some 'Government Should Get Out of the Way' campaign talking point is certainly one path, but I would argue that it is not what anyone wants. Remember, 'no decision' is a decision too."
