Arvada, CO, August 16, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Jason Bane, candidate for the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners (District 2), announced today that he has received the endorsement of United States Senator Ken Salazar.
"Jason Bane is among the new generation of leaders in Colorado dedicated to working with fellow elected officials and citizens, regardless of political affiliation, to achieve results for their communities,” said Sen. Salazar. “Jason's platform of promoting a vibrant business community and renewable energy industry, and to restoring the people's faith in their government, is a perfect fit for Jefferson County. I am happy to endorse Jason Bane for Jefferson County Commissioner."
Bane has already been endorsed by Congressman Ed Perlmutter (D-Wheat Ridge), as well as the Arvada Police Officers Association and the majority of the legislators in Jefferson County.
“Jefferson County government is badly in need of a new direction,” said Bane. “Turning things around in Jeffco is going to take someone who can work with all of our elected officials, from city councils to the U.S. Senate. That’s the kind of leadership I’ll bring to Jefferson County, and I am proud to have the support of Sen. Salazar and so many others.”
Jason Bane is running for the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners in District 2, although every Commissioner is elected by countywide vote. He is an award-winning journalist and longtime community activist who currently serves on the Board of the Jefferson County PTA. Jason and his wife, Julie, are lifelong residents of Jefferson County (Jason’s family has been in Jeffco for three generations); they live in Lakewood with their 2-year-old daughter, Stella, and are expecting their second child in September.
