Colorado House District 18 candidate Jennifer George today announced the endorsement of Buck Blessing, CEO and founder of Griffis/Blessing, named “Best Real Estate Management Company” by the Colorado Springs Business Journal every year since 2006:

While I supported the incumbent in the last election, this November I am 100% in support of Jennifer George for House District 18. I have known Jennifer George for many years. She is smart, focused, and a proven leader in our community. She has a record of success working with diverse groups of people to reach practical solutions.

Jennifer will concentrate on what matters most to Coloradans: getting our economy back on track and getting our fiscal house in order. I strongly endorse Jennifer George — she is a voice of moderation and reason who will best serve our community and state. We can all be proud to have a woman of Jennifer’s stature representing us in HD18.
