It’s election season and endorsement press releases are flying all over the place.

Today, Colorado Springs council member Jan Martin endorsed Jariah Walker in his bid for El Paso County Commissioner in District 5.

“I am very excited to give my full support to Jariah Walker,” Martin said in the press release. “Jariah is the kind of reasonable, solutions-driven person that we all want to see in political office.”

Walker is a businessman, a father and a volunteer for a number of nonprofits, Martin said. District 5 covers much of the city of Colorado Springs. District 5 currently is represented by County Commissioner Peggy Littleton, who is running for re-election.

“I am supporting Jariah Walker because I believe that he will bring energy, intelligence and common sense to the role of County Commissioner.”
