While there has been no announcement of opposition to Michelle Nauer's bid for re-election as Ouray County Clerk, I suspect that few people appreciate what a dedicated, knowledgeable and outstanding public servant Ouray County residents have in Ms. Nauer. She and her dedicated and personable staff do a remarkable job of frugally expending our tax dollars while meticulously following the changing mandates of state law governing everything from elections to vehicle registration. Having served as an election judge for Ms. Nauer on several occasions, I can personally attest to her neutrality, dedication and commitment. Whether her election bid is contested or not, she deserves the praise and respect of all Ouray County residents.
