“Sean Dougherty will serve us well as County Commissioner for Larimer County. I have known Sean for almost a decade and have been privileged to watch him as he has been at work in real estate, finding the fit for families as they move into and around our neighborhoods. I have also seen Sean as he has worked on the Larimer County Planning Commission where he has shown a patience and an attention to detail that will serve him well.

What I think is best about Sean is his attention to private property interests. In almost all things there is some ideal balance between competing interests, nowhere more do we see this than in land use. Making determinations about how to balance these interests is where you see the best of my friend, Sean. While understanding the desire of one party to have their use of a property granted, he sees the way to a compromise that ensures the enjoyment of all property owners, neither granting blanket permissions to one party or denying them to another.

The rich quality of life we enjoy in northern Colorado is dependent on being able to do what we wish with our property, with our time and with our resources. Sean will be a safeguard for our ability as citizens to live the lives we choose here in Larimer County. Please join me in supporting Sean Dougherty for Larimer County Commissioner this November.

Remember to vote!!”

– Representative Hugh McKean Colorado House District 51 Loveland, CO


“Sean has taken the time to learn the role of county government and the duties and responsibilities of serving as a county commissioner. I personally know him to be a man who cares about his community and has demonstrates a willingness to serve. Sean will represent the interests of all of his constituents.He’s taken the time to learn about the public safety challenges we face and has shown his commitment to supporting the men and women who serve and protect Larimer County. I encourage you to join me in supporting Sean to serve as our next District 1 County Commissioner.”

– Larimer County Sheriff, Justin Smith 


Sean has spent the last several years preparing to be a Larimer County Commissioner. He consistently attends Board of County Commissioner meetings, and has taken the time to be involved in everything from Chairing the Larimer County Planning Commission to participating as a stakeholder in the formation of the new 20 year Comprehensive Master Plan, to being involved in the Budget Process, from initial input to adoption. As a result, I believe that Sean is the only candidate qualified and ready to be your next District 1 Commissioner.

Larimer County needs a practical, community-minded leader, not an extremist.  Sean Dougherty’s county government and small business experience make him the clear choice for Larimer County Commissioner.”

Toki Hirakata: Sean Dougherty is the best candidate for the job

“I believe that Sean Dougherty is the right choice for Larimer County commissioner. After meeting Sean, I’ve come to learn that he has a contagious uplifting, positive attitude that has carried him through the primaries, and onto the ballot for this November.

Sean is not your typical politician, and has genuine interest, passion and love for Larimer County and its residents. Sean will work with county elected officials and staff on effective budgeting and using tax dollars wisely. He’s also determined to protect private property rights and facilitate wise growth management, working together with our strategic allies including cities and towns, schools, the business communities, and other stakeholders.

Sean is a successful business man selling nearly 400 properties for buyers and sellers in Northern Colorado.

I am glad to give my vote to a man who I believe will do the best job in this office.”

“Warnock: Realtors endorse Dougherty for county commissioner

‘The Loveland-Berthoud Association of Realtors is pleased to announce its endorsement of Sean Dougherty for Larimer County Commissioner, District 1. This decision was made after a committee of our members interviewed both candidates.

Several things stood out about Sean. First, he is the only candidate who has experience in local government, having served on the Planning and Zoning Commission for more than eight years. The P&Z is a quasi-judicial board, responsible for making important decisions. Sean’s familiarity with the land use process will stand him in good stead as a commissioner. He is familiar with county government.

Northern Colorado will grow. That is inevitable and unavoidable. In order to sustain our quality of life now and in the future, we need more water storage to keep the water we are legally entitled to from flowing outside our state. Sean supports the need for more water reservoirs, including the Windy Gap and Northern Integrated Supply Projects.

Sean has a countywide perspective. Both candidates are good and honorable men, but Sean’s vision includes all of Larimer County, not just Fort Collins.

For these reasons, we urge voters to support Sean Dougherty for Larimer County commissioner.’

Chairwoman

Loveland-Berthoud Association of Realtors”

 


Jeff C Jensen: Dougherty has the qualifications, experience to be Larimer County commissioner

POSTED:   09/11/2018 11:59:30 AM MDT

I support and endorse Sean Dougherty for Larimer County commissioner.

Sean has studied this job eight years as a member of the Larimer County Planning Commission and been mentored by Lew Gaiter for the past 2 ½ years. Sean has a servant leader’s heart and has been giving back to this community for many years.

I have known and worked next to Sean for many years and have watched him shape Larimer County as members of the Larimer County Planning Commission and part of the Mountain Resilience stakeholder committee. He has lent his expertise to the budgeting and strategic planning process as a community member with the current commissioners and had gained intimate knowledge of what it takes to be our next county commissioner.

This position is not the place for on the job training and there is only one candidate for this job that is qualified and experienced. That that is Sean Dougherty for Larimer County commissioner.

Meisner: Dougherty has business experience, budgetary skills

POSTED:   09/11/2018 07:55:38 PM MDT

 

I am writing this letter in support of Sean Dougherty for District 1 county commissioner.

Sean is a longtime resident of Larimer County and has been very active in this community for many years by serving on many committees and boards, including the Larimer County Planning Commission and the Red Feather Lakes Planning Advisory Committee. The knowledge that has gained on the current issues of Larimer County will give him insight and a head start in the role of county commissioner. His business experience has given him budgetary skills that will keep the Larimer County finances in check. His ability to work with staff and other officials has been proven in the past.

I personally have had many conversations with Sean and find that he listens and “gets the ball rolling” when I have shared my concerns. Sean’s vision will serve this county well. He shares my concern for keeping agriculture in Larimer County and is willing to hear us in the ag community.

Please vote for Sean Dougherty for District 1 county commissioner!
