The Local 2808 believes Abe Herman is the clear choice for City Council in District E. His forward-thinking approach will protect our community by ensuring firefighters have the resources we need to protect our residents and keep our firefighters safe. Abe has put extra effort into understanding the unique challenges our firefighters face and he stands with us in protecting Grand Junction. We look forward to continuing to serve Grand Junction with Abe Herman on City Council.

I worked in the oil and gas industry for three decades and I’ve seen our economy shift firsthand. Right now, we need policymakers with the brainpower to make sense of all the big changes going on around us and to position our economy for the future. Abe is a bright young businessman who represents that future and we’re lucky to have his talents.

I've known Abe Herman for several years through his volunteerism on behalf of our local homeless and unaccompanied youth. Abe approaches this work with a servant's heart, and he will be a great asset to our community through his service on City Council. I am excited about the future of Grand Junction with leaders like Abe moving us forward with compassion and intention.
