“Integrity, excellence, and respect.” These are not my words. They are the values of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. They are also the words Sheriff Shrader used this year when he thanked Steve Vincze for 33 years of dedicated service. The Vincze name may sound familiar.

Steve was the first candidate to register for the District 1 County Commissioner’s seat that opens when Mike Brazell successfully finishes his two terms.

For those that know him, the announcement was no surprise. Vincze  and his wife June not only have a deep love for outdoor activities, but also a passion for the people, communities, and the land of Park County.

They have been busy over the years educating themselves on Park County, both on how the county currently operates, and what we, the people, would like to see improve. You may have even bumped into them at one of the many meetings and events they’ve participated in. Vincze  is a quiet, careful listener and believes “We the people tell the government what to do, it doesn’t tell us.”

I encourage everyone to read Suzanne Fullerton van Hall’s letter (Land owner for Vincze, The Flume, Feb. 28, 2019) and get more information about Vincze from his website steve4commissioner.com.

I believe him when he says he’ll be working to keep Park County great because he does, in fact, embody the values of integrity, excellence and respect.”
