I'm Vern Heersink, it would be a privilege to serve as your next Alamosa County Commissioner.  I'm a 5th generation Alamosan.  I graduated from AHS, got an Associates degree from ASU and received a Bachelors in Soil and Crop Science from CSU.  My wife grew up in Alaska.  She came here to attend ASU and is now employed there.  We have 2 children.   My son is a Senior at AHS and my daughter is in 8th grade at OMS.  We have a small tractor repair business in the Waverly area.

I'm active in the church we attend.  I have served on the church council and as a Youth Group Leader.  I've sat on the board for Christian Community Service Projects and I volunteer on the Carmel Fire Department.

I feel we need leaders that recognize they are a servant and an employee of the people.

I believe individuals are capable of making sound decisions for themselves and their families, and should be allowed to do so.

I would be happy to meet or talk with anyone who would like to get to know me better before the election.  Feel free to contact me at 719-588-3134.

Level heads in leadership positions will help ensure a bright future for Alamosa.  I can be that voice of reason.

I humbly ask for your vote this November.

Thank You.




New Office.

We just signed the lease this morning for our new SLV Republican Party office!! The address is 817 Main Street, Alamosa. We plan to be serving all SLV counties in giving out candidate campaign information, sending out mailers, answering questions, and whatever else is needed. The office will also be available for candidate meet and greets, training sessions, petition signings and voter registration. Not quite sure of what the hours will be just yet, but stop by when you are in town!


GJ DAILY SENTINEL: GARDNER: BLM HQ MOVING TO GRAND JUNCTION
"Gardner has been pushing the idea of a headquarters move since the Obama administration, and long has lobbied for a Grand Junction location."

COLORADO SUN: Bureau of Land Management to move headquarters to Grand Junction, Cory Gardner says
"Gardner has been among the chief advocates for the BLM’s move to the Western Slope, arguing that the agency’s decision makers should be closer to the people they serve and the lands they manage."

DENVER POST: Bureau of Land Management moving HQ to Grand Junction, Cory Gardner says
"Gardner first proposed the idea of moving BLM headquarters at a Senate hearing in 2016. After President Donald Trump’s election later that year, he organized support within the Trump administration and in Grand Junction, his office said Monday."
