Pick Blosten for board
Charlie Blosten is a candidate for the May 8 South Suburban Parks and Recreation District’s Board of Directors election, and we wholeheartedly endorse him because we believe he has the experience to make sound decisions for the future of the SSPR District.
During our many years serving on the City of Littleton staff with Charlie, we observed first-hand his creative problem solving and his ability to work closely with other governmental agencies, citizens, businesses and fellow employees to get things done.
As public works director, Charlie managed his department’s annual $25 million budget and 65 employees. His responsibilities included acquisition of open space and trails, such as South Platte Park, Lee Gulch and others. Charlie worked closely with the SSPRD staff and understands the workings of the district. He knows how important the board’s role is to ensure that our parks, recreational facilities and programs are properly maintained now and in the future.
Charlie is a visionary. He initiated the Littleton Community (City Ditch) Trail, and saw it through to completion, involving negotiations with the railroad, Englewood and others. Charlie values family traditions. The Candlelight Walk and Tree Lighting on Main Street in downtown Littleton was another of his inspirations, a holiday festivity that has thrilled thousands of families for 34 years.
Charlie is passionate about maintaining SSPRD’s parks, facilities, programs and open spaces par excellence. He is a team player and will be a positive addition to the SSPRD Board.
