Saguache County Municipalities RepresentativeMore About Ann
(Saguache, Crestone, Center). She has held that position since 2015. Ann is a longtime Colorado resident, growing up in Glenwood Springs and has lived in Crestone for more than 20 years. She became a Certified Water Professional in 2014 and began working for the Town of Crestone shortly after, first as a Water System Operator and more recently as Water System Manager. She enjoys the versatility of the job: doing everything from meeting with engineers in developing the Town’s augmentation plan, to exercising valves, upgrading system components, educating schoolchildren, and everything in between.
Her interests focus on travel, languages and music- and sharing those interests with her family. But she’s always happy to get back home, where she appreciates clean, satisfying water- and the efforts that many people make to ensure its delivery.
