Clerk’s Office Partners with RBA to Keep Carson Strong 

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is partnering with the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance to facilitate community input for protecting El Paso County’s military installations from potential force reductions.

The community input effort will center on “Keep Carson Strong” postcards that residents can sign and return that express support for Fort Carson and the military’s positive impact on the Pikes Peak region.  The cards will be provided by the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance Military Affairs Council and made available at the Clerk and Recorder’s four motor vehicle locations (listed below).  The cards will be available through August 25.

“It is extremely important that the individuals making the decisions on force reductions understand the love and appreciation that residents in El Paso County have for our military,” said Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance Chief Defense Industry Officer Andy Merritt.  “Communicating that understanding to decision-makers starts with people expressing their positive view of the armed forces in our area by signing and returning one of these postcards, or sending an email to”

“I am happy to help Keep Carson Strong by offering our offices as a conduit for this communication,” stated El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams.  “My tremendous respect for the military and its presence in our community instill in me a sense of urgency to help in this endeavor.  Our community is strong because Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base, NORAD, and the Air Force Academy are strong.  To keep our community strong, everyone needs to make their voice heard.”

The postcards will be available at each county motor vehicle office’s greeter station where customers would receive a service order number.  Clerk and Recorder’s Office staff will offer a card to each customer seeking service.  Members of the general public seeking the postcard need only to request it from the greeter.  The card also may be returned to the greeter for mailing.
