Three more endorsements!

Blog    On October 30, 2016

More great news! In the last full week of October, we learned that three more newspapers have endorsed my candidacy for Congress – the Gunnison Country Times, the Crested Butte News, and the Crestone Eagle. Here are some key excerpts from each newspaper’s editorial:


Crested Butte News, Oct. 26: “In this time of toxic partisan politics where party loyalty trumps overall country benefit, Gail might actually be one of those sitting in Congress who could help pull back that poisonous attitude. Her political history demonstrates a willingness to work with members of both parties for the good of a cause and that’s really impressive and important right now. She works hard, she works smart and she will work for people like us living out here in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. Vote for Gail Schwartz for the U.S. House of Representatives.”


Gunnison Country Times, Oct. 27: “Schwartz came to the state Senate in 2006 with a public service background in education but quickly became an advocate for energy, water, and agricultural interests…Still, she never lost sight of education, sponsoring the Building Schools Today program which has led to the construction of more than $1 billion in schools…We think it’s time for western Colorado to be represented by a more moderate voice. Our support is with Schwartz.”


Crestone Eagle: “Schwartz had been our region’s Colorado State Senator, co-creating the BEST program—Building Excellent Schools Today, which funded new schools all over rural Colorado, including the Moffat School and Crestone Charter School. She’s a strong advocate for public lands. She would be an excellent representative for our 3rd Congressional District, bringing her integrity and values to Congress.”
