Incredible to think four years has passed! 

I’m fully committed to running for re-election for a second (and last) four year term.  San Miguel County has a 2 term limit for County Commissioners. 

This year has been particularly challenging for local government. We had a crash course on pandemics and responded quickly. As the situation progresses we are constantly working to balance public health and economic health. It’s an ongoing challenge that highlights that we are all in this together.

As always, getting input from residents and business owners in our region is incredibly important. In Covid times that generally means a phone call or email. I respond as soon as possible, so whether it is a weed issue or input on public health orders or a whole new topic – please reach out. Your voice matters!    My email is and phone is 970-708-0933.  I look forward to hearing from you!




Kris Holstrom for San Miguel County
Board of Commissioners 3rd District

Bringing experience, dedication and creative innovation that fits our values and
contributes to local resilience

Welcome to the Kris Holstrom for San Miguel County Commissioner 3rd District website! It’s been 4 years and I am running for re-election!

San Miguel County is a unique and spectacular community of diverse individuals from pioneer families whose relatives homesteaded here to long time locals to new folks who are making this beautiful place their home. All county residents deserve to have their government representatives not only hear and respect their voices, but be willing to roll up their sleeves and work for them!

I have lived and worked here for decades, and I’ve been very active – involved with local government, non-profits, businesses, and our agriculture sectors.

GovernmentOutofWayBannerWhen I ran in 2016 I pledged to ‘Focus on Three’ – District 3. I came in as an avid listener and learner, and built on my 20 years experience with the County Planning Commission where making balanced and fair decisions was essential. As a commissioner, I was Chair in 2018 and 2019 where a calm demeanor and an ‘ears not ego’ attitude again served to keep meetings smooth. I have worked hard to bring items important to our district to the table.
