The Board of Directors of the Pikes Peak Lodging Association (PPLA) unanimously endorsed Sallie Clark for re-election to the El Paso County Board of Commissioners to represent Commissioner District 3.
“Sallie Clark has a proven track record as an effective representative as well as a successful businesswoman,” said PPLA President Steve Ducoff. “Commissioner Clark has served her district in an outstanding manner and brings a wealth of knowledge in the lodging, hospitality and tourism industry. As a small-business owner on the Board of County Commissioners, Sallie also brings an important entrepreneurial spirit and perspective to county government, especially important during these challenging economic times.”
The board of directors of the Pikes Peak Lodging Association recognizes Sallie Clark as the best person with the most experience to continue as the representative for Commissioner District 3 and encourages community support of her candidacy.
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of the Pikes Peak Lodging Association in my role as an El Paso County Commissioner,” said Clark. “Considering the impact that vacation travel has to District 3 and El Paso County, as a business owner and past board member of the Colorado Travel and Tourism Authority, I understand first-hand, tourism’s importance to the economy in our region. I look forward to continuing to advocate and complete projects that will benefit the lodging and tourism industry and our local residents—roads, transportation, infrastructure, public safety and our regional county parks system, among others.”
