Dear Friends,

San Miguel County is one of the most beautiful places in the world to live. As your Commissioner I will work hard to make it more affordable for residents, preserve our communities and continue my efforts to protect our natural resources.

Local government should be an invitation to collaborate and develop solutions that address county issues.

I will listen and do my best to represent the residents of District 1 and all of San Miguel County.

Please vote Hilary Cooper for District 1 in the Democratic primary on June 28, 2016.

Your neighbor,

Hilary White Cooper
