Fact: Commissioner Mathers is the closest thing to a career politician that we have in Moffat County.

Fact: Assessors work! Coroners Work! Clerk Recorders work! Treasurers work! Sheriffs work! Surveyors work!

Commissioners make political decisions!!!

Fact: Commissioner Mathers has fed from the trough of Moffat County tax payers for three terms, and wants another.

Fact: That could be 16 years total, of Govenment pay checks for Commissioner Mathers.

Fact: Commissioner Mathers needs to go back to the ranch so that he can truly be a Shepherd!!!

Just the facts to be shepherded by. BAA BAA BAA ( You do understand that don't you, poor lost sheep of Moffat County?)
