RTD needs Edwards

A lot of attention this November will focus on the presidential election. Even so, Highlands Ranch has a unique local election to consider and one of our neighbors is running to represent us on the RTD Board of Directors.

Roger Edwards is the clear-cut choice for the job. Roger is running for District H director that includes Highlands Ranch, Cherry Hills, and portions of Greenwood Village, Littleton and Centennial. Roger owns his own regional trucking company and has worked as a corporate logistics manager, bringing an extensive background in making things run both on time and on budget. With RTD’s more than $166 million shortfall, Roger is the right person for the job at the right time.

And it’s not just RTD’s continued burning of taxpayer dollars that should sway your vote. Recent discussions about removing police officers from light rail and various bus routes puts our community’s most vulnerable in unnecessary danger. Imagine people who may be under the influence riding the trains or buses lashing out at innocent riders — all while knowing there’s nothing to stop them. Guess what? Roger votes NO to that lunacy.

But what of RTD’s future? Before COVID struck our community, RTD’s ridership was falling at alarming rates. And constant begging for tax increases and federal grants is not a sustainable business plan. We need an expert in these matters to help fix RTD’s lingering problems. We need Roger.

This November, make your vote count toward RTD. Vote Roger Edwards to represent us!
