San Juan County Councilmember Bill Watson sent out the following notice Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
I am announcing today that I will retire at the end of 2020 and not seek re-election for a second term as County Councilmember for District #1 in November of 2020. In the final year of my term, I will continue to do my best to serve the citizens of San Juan County. The timing of my announcement is intended to give those who may have an interest in seeking office sufficient time to consider carefully the position. I am open to sharing my insights and experiences with anyone who is considering running.
