Take the #GarCoPledge

Two of the three Garfield County commissioner seats are up for election this November. These races matter because county commissioners are responsible for decisions that strike closest to home: our local economy, our quality of life, our environment and more. Plus, strong Democratic turnout in these races is crucial to winning in Congressional and presidential races.


We need 1,000 local voters to take this pledge before the November election - starting with you.

This is a community response to a Board of County Commissioners that has:


  • Spent county money fighting regulations that would protect our air.  

  • Opposed the same water safety regulations that protect front range communities.  

  • Blamed health & safety regulations for the diminishing revenue from oil & gas production; in fact, production from small-scale fracking operations, like those in our county, are predicted to decline world-wide in the coming years, due to trends in the industry.

The numbers show that we can win this election

  • Paula Stepp lost her 2018 race for County Commissioner by fewer than 800 votes. 

  • Over 1,300 registered Democratic voters did not vote in the 2018 commissioner election.

  • Over 4,400 Unaffiliated voters did not vote in the 2018 commissioner election.

  • The majority of Unaffiliated voters in our county tend to vote for progressive candidates.
