My thoughts go out to all of you who are coping during the Coronavirus pandemic economic squeeze who have reduced or lost work, business, benefits, or health.
It's a time of coming together to help our neighbors, family and friends
meet basic needs and stay safe.
Please support our local human services groups, food pantries, and
small businesses as you are able.
Thank you to volunteers reaching out to the most vulnerable in our community.

I'm honored to have been elected County Commissioner District 3.
Thanks to every registered voter who voted in the 2020 elections. The final vote counts are posted on the Gilpin County and
Secretary of State Colorado websites.
Hi! I've been asked and yes I supported the mill levy issues on the ballot. Although I understand that many people's budgets are stretched due to
the pandemic, I supported the 3 year limit on two of the mills.
The Community Center levy passed meaning that it will reopen
fewer days but as a gathering place for all ages
with streamlined programs & staff.
The Sheriff's Office mill levy did not pass to keep funding for
first responders and dispatchers at 2020 levels
so operating budgets are being
adjusted down and vacancies unfilled in these lean times.
The Library mill levy passed to
restore their staff and services to pre-Covid levels.
The Gilpin School mill levy did not pass
to provide it supplemental funding.
With limited community gatherings, I'm keeping up with local and county meetings via Zoom, Facebook, articles, and websites.
Elected officials are already starting our training to prepare for 2021.
Since July 2019, until the March closures, I've been attending
community groups, county commissioner and advisory meetings,
and events to meet residents, learn about organizations, and listen to your thoughts about Gilpin County. I'm still listening.
During Coronavirus I've been volunteering at both food banks,
organizing donations to address food insecurity, helped GCART with evacuated animals at the Barn, made Mountain Masks, collected and delivered firewood, and
I am serving on Community Center reopening work-groups.
Please feel free to contact me.
Let's have a conversation about Gilpin County! Be well, Sandy
