Business center to be named after former commissioner Marianna Raftopoulos
The Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership Board voted unanimously Wednesday in favor of naming the One-Stop Business Incubator in memory of late Moffat County Commissioner and community leader Marianna Raftopoulos. Raftopoulos, who died in April 2010 at 55 following an 11-year battle with chronic lymphoid leukemia, was very active in public service, most notably becoming the first woman elected to the Moffat County Commission. Commissioner Audrey Danner, county liaison to the EDP Board, recalled fond memories Wednesday of her friend and the person who paved the way for women to hold county office.
