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.”

  1. Abe is an asset to this community, setting healthy examples for our community in general. Abe’s work in connecting people with the outdoors both empowers and provides a space that allows for the release of stress symptoms while mitigating unhealthy stress responses. Abe’s platform is one that Grand Junction desperately needs, we need not look further than the extremely high rates of suicide in Mesa county to know that something is not working and measures need to be taken to change the many negative narratives that continues to damage the lives of any GJ community members. As a student earning an MS in Counseling with a certification in ecopsychology I have witnessed the benefits of including nature in clinical work with a variety of populations from children to law enforcement. You have my support, Abe!

  2. If only Tina Peters were below him – he is in the perfect position to drop a giant clump of sh*t onto Tina and her “crossed arms which symbolize her self importance.”
