    POLIS of colorado in the house of representatives Friday, January 25, 2013 Mr. POLIS. Mr. Speaker, it is with great honor that I rise before this body of Congress and this nation today to recognize Mr. Peter Runyon of Edwards, Colorado. Peter has just stepped down as a two-term county commissioner for the great county of Eagle, Colorado.

    Being a commissioner in one of the country's premier resort communities has its challenges, but Peter approached the job with integrity and passion. He served his citizens with a steadfast commitment to making the place they call home a better place in which to live and work. Peter's concerns about community growth and sustainability were the hallmark of his tenure and many important things resulted from his labors.

    His pursuit of smart growth, collaborative governing, transportation planning and open space have resulted in important changes in land use regulations, intergovernmental cooperation and a very successful voter- approved open space program, to name a few.

    Mr. Speaker, It is with great pride that I rise to pay tribute to Mr. Peter Runyon on behalf of the residents of the 2nd Congressional District and myself. His contributions to Eagle County will remain his legacy for many years to come.
