“I wholeheartedly believe that Steve’s leadership will add to the quality of our local community,” Maketa said in a statement issued by the Bach campaign.
“Steve will bring passion and fresh perspective to the office of mayor. I have been very impressed with his intellect and commitment to serve our citizens,” Maketa is quoted as saying. “He brings a heartfelt passion that is easily recognized when you talk to him about his goals and visions for our great city.”
Bach, in the same statement, said he was “honored” by Maketa’s endorsement.
“As Mayor, I will collaberate (sic) with other agencies, including the El Paso County Sheriff’s office, and I look forward to working with Sheriff Maketa on the goal of improving Colorado Springs for all of its citizens,” Bach said in the statement.
