The Fort Collins Board of REALTORS® and the Loveland-Berthoud Association of REALTORS® are supporting Lew Gaiter for Larimer County Commissioner, District 1. A committee comprised of members from both associations interviewed the three candidates and recommended Gaiter to the boards of both associations.
Although the committee felt CDOT Commissioner and former Loveland Mayor Kathy Gilliland was also a strong candidate, in the end Gaiter’s experience as an incumbent persuaded the committee to recommend him. Gaiter supports REALTOR issues including economic development, private property rights and the need to expand I-25. He believes the county and its municipalities should work together for the benefit of the citizens. (Eric Sutherland is also petitioned his way on the ballot as a write-in candidate.)
