Jane Norton

Colorado Lt. Governor (former)

Janet Rowland shares my values as a compassionate conservative. She understands that protecting our children and youth requires community partnerships and she has a track record of bringing together public, private, non-profit and faith-based organizations to solve community problems such as protecting children and supporting senior citizens.

I fully support Janet Rowland for County Commissioner.  Janet has proven knowledge and a strong work ethic, along with conservative values.  I look forward to seeing her once again in the Commissioner's chair.

It’s exciting to see Janet Rowland come back to run for elected office.  She is a principled, fiscal conservative who understands our community and knows how to form partnerships to get things done.

Josh Penry

Colorado State Senator, (former)

Janet Rowland has a track record of fighting for the kind of government that Mesa County residents want.  She played a central role in driving statewide policy on the meth crisis and was an ever-present lioness for limited government on stages big and small.


Use of the bully pulpit brought occasional controversy to Janet's tenure. But so what? That's leadership. When you are taking flack, you are over the target, and Janet was never bashful about doing precisely that.

Yeulin Willett

Colorado State Representative, (former)


Janet Rowland is solid as can be and a proven leader. She is just what we need for Mesa County in the coming years.

Having had the opportunity to serve as a County Commissioner alongside Janet for 8 years, I can attest that she is a principled conservative. She also understands, better than anyone, the human services world and the many programs and formulas associated.  You will not find a stronger advocate

for those considered “at risk” who helps in a manner that protects them and supports them in achieving self-sufficiency, rather than a lifetime of dependency on welfare programs.

Integrity then, integrity now. In the 25 years we have known Janet
Rowland, she has demonstrated integrity. As a counselor in private practice, while working at the Deparment of Human Services, while serving as County Commissioner, and as Executive Director of CASA.   Her entire professional career has been serving others, and always with stellar integrity.  These are the qualities we want in local government!  We endorse Janet Rowland  for Mesa County Commissioner.

Knowing Janet Rowland all of my adult life, she is a consistent and committed servant.  She is a tested conservative who does what is right, respecting freedom and limited government, while encouraging citizens to be active in their role to support their own communities. I fully support Janet Rowland's run for County Commissioner. 

Laura Carno

Janet Rowland understands that when communities are faced with challenges, instead of raising taxes they should raise their expectations. She has been a defender of TABOR and has a track record of finding creative solutions to financial challenges.

Janet Rowland has an incredible record of public service.  As a former county commissioner in Mesa County, Janet was known for hard work, fiscal responsibility and common sense.  Every job she has ever done has been done with compassion for those whom she chose to serve.  Mesa County would be well-served to have Janet serve again as county commissioner.

Janet Rowland has my full endorsement in her race for Mesa County Commissioner. Janet is an exceptional individual who has served her community with personal integrity and character. Janet is passionate about protecting families and putting children first in her leadership roles.


I've personally seen Janet on countless occasions exceed collaborative expectations to bring our community together on common ground for the good of Mesa County.  And at the end of the day we need more folks in office who can do just that.

I have known Janet since 2006. She is truly interested in making this community a better place for all. I would love to see her in a commissioners seat once again!

I believe in candidates who model our values, so I’ll be voting for Janet Rowland for Mesa County Commissioner. Janet has invested a significant amount of her life into our community through her time as a former Public Information Officer, County Commissioner, Director of CASA and now in a National capacity as the National Director of Project 1.27. With this experience, Janet understands how local government works – and doesn’t. I believe Janet will be an effective advocate for Mesa County, who will hit the ground running on the FIRST day of her term. Please join me in voting for Janet Rowland.

Janet Rowland is that rare candidate who has demonstrated the experience, expertise and talent to do the job for which she is running. More importantly, she has shown, time and again, that her heart is in the right place. She sincerely cares about the people of Mesa County and our kids. I wholeheartedly endorse Janet Rowland for Mesa County Commissioner.

Public officials who genuinely display honesty and integrity are very hard to find , at least in my experience. Janet Rowland is one of that rare breed. As such, I would encourage Mesa County voters to return her to office. She will serve the area with distinction as she has done previously. I very rarely endorse anyone publicly, but I am more than happy to do so with Janet Rowland.

After my move to Grand Junction, Janet Rowland was one of the people I sought out for advice about the political, public and business climates in our Valley and the myriad issues facing us. And while Janet and I do tend to agree on many issues, what I found most appealing about our conversations was when we disagreed. Janet has a patient, caring demeanor when considering what a differing opinion has to say, and nothing comes in much handier when addressing issues in an elected role.


Janet and I have had spirited conversations in agreement and disagreement on many topics over the years. It is that spirit that has had me supporting Janet and the people and organizations she represented with nary a question, because doing what’s right and best comes easy for her. I wholeheartedly endorse Janet Rowland for County Commissioner.

After leaving public office Janet has proved how genuine her commitment to the priority of safety for children is through her, often unlauded, work with non-profits and organizations.  I’ve seen consistent and visible service to the community, both publicly and behind the scenes for more than a decade and I have no doubt she will keep on the same path of helping to make the Grand Valley a safe place to grow up, raise a family, start a business, or retire. 


I believe she can, once again, best serve in the role of county commissioner and I endorse her without hesitation.
