Editor,

In the quest to serve as your San Miguel County Commissioner, people often ask me to speak about myself. It has, however, always seemed better to let my actions speak for me. Here are a few actions that I have taken that will help to better answer the question, “who is Dan Chancellor?” Happily married for 34 years, my wife, Paula Ciberay, and I have two grown and accomplished sons. In 1996, we re-established Telluride Boy Scout Troop 500. My five years of service as Scoutmaster, thoroughly convinced me of the incredible generosity of the local community.  For over twenty-nine years I have worked hard as the owner/operator of a small local sign business, offering a quality product at a fair price. Twenty years as a Volunteer Placerville firefighter and nine years as a volunteer EMT on the Placerville Ambulance were two of the most rewarding challenges of my life. What a marvelous, life changing experience it has been, to be a part of this family of dedicated volunteers For decades, I have stood tall for candidates and causes vital to the well-being of this community, the nation and the planet. As a concerned citizen, I have testified at numerous hearings in front of varied boards and commissions, on issues including the protection of wild horses, the preservation of the Valley Floor and  the myriad concerns surrounding the Pinion Ridge uranium mill near San Miguel County. Frequently, I and others have been disappointed to see my opponent, Art Goodtimes, sit on the sidelines, in the face of urgent need for action.  At varied hearings and meetings I have stepped forward and through scores of radio and newspaper commentaries I have endeavored to alert county residents to impending environmental, economic and health concerns. I am not a great orator, a local celebrity or a seasoned politician, but rather, a hard-working, accessible and capable public servant, prepared to do whatever it takes to best serve this county. I would appreciate your vote for county commissioner on or before November 6th.
