The oil and natural gas industry, intergovernmental relationships, and county personnel were among the topics addressed by political candidates Thursday night at The Center of Craig, 601 Yampa Ave. More than 50 Craig and Moffat County residents attended the forum hosted by the Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots to hear five candidates vying for two Moffat County Commission seats outline their campaign platforms and field questions from a three-person panel and audience members. Participating in the forum were District 1 candidates Dave DeRose, who is running as a Republican, and John Kinkaid, who is running unaffiliated. Audrey Danner, Chuck Grobe and Rick Barnes also participated in the forum as Republican candidates for District 2.
