By LARRY WINGET

ANTONITO — Antonito resident June Madril, an employee of Rocky Mountain SER, has announced her candidacy for the position of Conejos County Commissioner for District I. She is running as a Democrat. The district covers the southern portion of Conejos County. Commissioner John Sandoval currently holds the position and is running for re-election.

Madril was born and raised in Conejos County. She graduated from Antonito High School in 1979. Madril and her husband Nasario Madril, Jr. live four miles south of Antonito. They have three grown children, Kristie, Charmaine, and Roxanne. She currently works as a Field Service Representative for Rocky Mountain SER in the Jobs for Progress program at the South Central Colorado Workforce Center in Alamosa.

She served for 22 years with the Conejos County Department of Social Services as Child Support Administrator. Madril also served a four-year term on the South Conejos School Board.

In a written release Madril said she “feels partnerships she has made through her employment at the Workforce Center will be very beneficial in promoting economic development for the county.” She emphasized the fact that economic development has always been an issue in Conejos County and is “only addressed when officials are seeking re-election.”

On the question of bring a correctional facility into the county Madril said, “I’ll be honest with you, I’m against it.”

She wrote that her experience and long time residency in Conejos County has made her aware of the needs and concerns of the community which has given her an insight for future opportunities for the county.

She states that she is ready to address the unemployment issues that exist due to the lack of industry in the county. “Economic development is a priority,” she said, “and should be treated as such.” She stresses that she will take action rather than continued discussions and empty promises.
