LEADERSHIP FOR CHALLENGING TIMES
Thank you for visiting my website and being a part of the conversation about our city's future. We have a lot of work ahead of us and I look forward to continuing this journey with you.
- Rick Taggart
A RECORD OF ECONOMIC SUCCESS
For 30 years, Rick has served in CEO and leadership roles with Swiss Army Brands, Marmot, the Timberland Company, the Grand Junction Airport Board, and Colorado Mesa University. His leadership helped Grand Junction’s economy reach a decade-high of diverse jobs creation before the crisis of 2020. Rick is determined to return our city to prosperity in 2021.
When crisis struck in 2020, Rick mobilized our city to work with first responders, local hospitals, small business owners, and nonprofits on solutions that kept businesses open, protected our residents, and brought aid to those most in need. Their collaboration lowered infection rates and avoided the long business closures seen on the Front Range.

A CITY COUNCIL
THAT WORKS FOR US
Rick knows that our community is a special place and what works elsewhere doesn’t work here. We all have our part to play in protecting what we love about living here and writing the next chapter of homegrown opportunity for our city. Rick is running to continue putting resident voices at the heart of city decision-making and accountability.
