Perry Will has called Garfield County home since the mid-70s. Married and a father of two, Perry is a fourth-generation Coloradoan who grew up farming and ranching in Southeast Colorado. He is running for re-election as State Representative in House District 57.
A true outdoorsman with a deep understanding the importance of preserving our western heritage and traditions in Garfield County, Perry worked as a game warden for the Colorado Division of Wildlife for over 40 years. In that capacity, he helped to protect natural resources, enforce policies, and educate on the importance of habitat stewardship and management.
As a two-term state representative, Perry's core beliefs include supporting free enterprise, smaller government and an emphasis on personal responsibility. His motivation for running for State Representative is fueled by his desire to represent rural Colorado and Western Slope values which often get edged out in the urban-dominated state legislature.
“I feel I bring a perspective that is much needed in the General Assembly. I promise you strong, determined and principled leadership,” he said. “It has been a true privilege and honor to serve the great people of House District 57 and I respectfully ask for your vote again in November!”
In his tenure as State Representative, Perry is most proud of major legislation he has gotten passed to benefit the people of his district and visitors to the state including healthcare, forest management, biomass energy and conservation bills among others. Perry is known as a relationship-builder who can get the job done and as someone with a track record of effectiveness despite having served in the minority during his legislative career.
In his next term, one of his top issues will be to make housing more affordable and accessible to those who live and work in Garfield County, continue to take care of our precious natural resources and public lands, protect our Western Slope water and preserve the agricultural way of life Garfield County.
