Mesa County Commissioner Janet Rowland vs. former Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters: Lots of similarities
When their behaviors as elected officials are compared, Mesa County Commissioner Janet Rowland and former Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters have more in common than people may realize:
One big difference: Janet still holds elected office while Tina is out of office and facing trial and potential prison time for multiple felonies related to her time in office.
Other than that, plenty of similarities.

Janet Rowland, from her campaign video titled “Transparency.” Rowland says, “I believe transparency in government is absolutely critical…I believe that you, the taxpayer, should know what your government is up to, and how they’re spending your money.” But she’s spent tens of thousands in taxpayer money to attack Mesa County Public Health Department Director Jeff Kuhr in a way that intentionally avoided policies that are in place to assure transparency in government spending.
