Abe Herman will announce the launch of his campaign for the Grand Junction City Council District E seat on Thursday, January 7th at 12:15 p.m. in front of Grand Junction City Hall at 250 N. 5th Street.
Abe is a local small business owner and Colorado native who has made his mark across the Grand Valley, helping fund programs to get local youth outdoors, teaching veterans with disabilities to rock climb, working to get homeless youth back on their feet, and bringing other young leaders into our city’s vital long-term planning conversations. He has been endorsed by two sitting council members, Chuck McDaniel and Rick Taggart, who will be present at the campaign launch on Thursday.
50 signatures needed, per City Charter
Many of Abe’s supporters will be in attendance as well to sign his petition to get on the ballot, and help launch his bid for Grand Junction City Council.
“I’m excited to work on behalf of the citizens of Grand Junction, to protect the community we know and love,” said Mr. Herman in the lead-up to Thursday’s event. “That means keeping our cost of living low and our way of life secure, and maintaining a safe community where families can flourish.”
