Incumbent commissioner ‘relieved’ by voters’ decision
Moffat County Commissioner Tom Mathers said he knew exactly why county voters chose him to serve another four years in the District 3 seat during Tuesday’s general election. “It was my honesty,” he said. Mathers, 61, the incumbent District 3 commissioner, defeated write-in candidate Kerry Moe by 2,633 votes. He received 3,271 votes, or about 84 percent, to Moe’s 638 votes, or about 16 percent.
