Wilson has character county needs

Yes she’s a Texas transplant, and she is a class act y’all. For those not familiar with Darien Wilson (candidate for Douglas County commissioner), she has been an active community member for years, and is someone who values decision-making based on good information. I’ve watched Darien grow as an advocate for our public school students and educators and I am so happy to see her running for office. If I had to pick three words to describe Darien, they would be: caring, intelligent, and respectful.

I met Darien in 2013 when she joined the School Accountability Committee where I was a volunteer, at Northridge Elementary school in Highlands Ranch. I was immediately struck by Darien’s style and her curiosity about how decisions were made at the school and district levels. She asked many questions and sought to be more involved. As a mother of three children who would be getting their educations here, she seemed determined to understand the priorities and challenges in the schools. I admired her passion and ability to listen and acknowledge all sides of small, large, and controversial issues.

Darien and I also served on the Mountain Ridge Middle School SAC together, and I was always glad to see her at District Accountability Committee and school board meetings because she’d always done her homework and came prepared with important questions and comments.

I am grateful some like Darien is running for county commissioner. She’s exactly the kind of smart, sensible and sincere leader Douglas County needs.
