About P.T. Wood
I am deeply committed to and believe strongly in Salida. I have lived in Colorado my entire life, and Salida has been my home for nearly 30 years. During that time I’ve been an active part of the business community as owner of Moonlight Pizza, Wood Development, and Wood’s High Mountain Distillery. Since 2007, I have served on the Salida Planning and Zoning Commission. Currently, I am the Chair of the Planning Commission, a position I have held for the past 6 years. I am also the President of the Colorado Distillers Guild and Vice President of the American Craft Spirits Association.
Through these experiences, I have learned to run an efficient and thoughtful meeting, drawing out issues and concerns and helping to reach consensus. These are skills I feel are vitally important in a Mayor. I feel our sense of place, goodwill, caring, and our strength in facing challenges represent the foundation of our community. I believe these values are worth nurturing.
I have decided to run for Mayor because I want to contribute my leadership skills to our community. I want to help restore faith in city government’s ability to represent long held values, while acknowledging that our community is changing and requires representative leadership. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, concerns and ideas for our small city. I hope I can count on your vote!
