Letter: Moffat County Commissioner issues apology letter about burn

Tom Gray

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.

Tom Gray
