To the editor:
I lit a fire when a fire ban was on. No excuses or justifications, I was wrong.
The article did an accurate job of describing the facts at the time. Beyond that, actions speak louder than words, and my actions send the message that I believe I am somehow above the rules.
My actions call into question my personal ethics and moral standards, and as a Christian reflect badly on my fellow believers and on God himself.
I've said to myself many times in the last few days, "What was I thinking?"
However, what is done is done and I can only say this isn't how I've lived my life or what I believe.
I apologize to the citizens of Moffat County. I made a mistake.
Moffat County Commissioner
