2 I The Lovell Chronicle J April 5, 2012 County Commissioner Ewen announces re-election bid BY DAVID PECK Big Horn County Commissioner Jerry Ewen used the oc- casion of the March 17 Lincoln Day Dinner in Lovell to an- nounce that he intends to seek re-election in 2012. Ewen won the Republican nomination for one of three commission seats in August of 2008 and went on to defeat Mary Freund in the general election in November of that year. Ewen said he has learned a lot during his first three-plus years as a commissioner. "I've always considered myself to be a peacemaker in business and other areas, but I've found that although I'm a peacemaker and don't like to fight, there are things that are worth fighting for," Ewen said. "I've worked hard the last three years, and I hope that you agree with me, because I will be stepping forward to ask for at least one more term as your county commissioner." Ewen said it has been an honor and a privilege to serve as a commissioner, calling it "an awe- some responsibil- ity." He said he still remembers his first meeting when he stood and faced the flag to re- cite the pledge of allegiance. That's when it hit home what a responsibil- ity it is to serve the citizens of Big Horn County. "Your county commission makes decisions every day that affect all the details of your life, and we do take it very seriously," he said. Ewen said a lot of things prepared him for serving on Jerry Ewen the commission in- cluding a variety of public service, military service, serving on the South Search and Rescue squad, church leadership, years as a small business owner and his ranching background. "I have learned some things during my first term as a county commissioner," he said. 'The very first thing I learned was that the government process is a lot different than the process I was used to as a small business owner. Things take a lot longer, and we have to be a lot more careful because we are dealing with public money. That's our first responsibility as a county commission. We provide oversight for the county on what funds are spent. "It was also a pleasant surprise for me to find that you re- ally do watch what we do. I appreciate that. I like the fact that we are held accountable. So please feel free to continue to send us emails or call us on the telephone or stop us on the street and give us your opinion. That's the only way that we know how you feel about what we do," : , ,. Ewen said it takes a lot of time to be a commissioner, 6ail- ing it "a full-time job" that inVSTves keein-up with citizen correspondence, attending various board meetings around the county and working on problems and issues. "One of the most important things I learned is how deeply the federal government.has its fingers in everything we do," he said. "It is so pervasive it's alarming. We have worked very hard on the county commission for three years on the BLM Resource Management Plan. "Keith Grant (commissioner) does an excellent job work- ing with the Forest Service and the BLM on your behalf, and I deeply appreciate that. About 80 percent of the land in Big Horn COunty is federal land, and it is very closely tied to our economics." Please recycle this newspaper.
