Romney visit cost city $25K

A week ago, Craig city officials began receiving phone calls seeking assistance with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's scheduled campaign visit to the city. Romney appeared Tuesday before an estimated 2,000 people at Alice Pleasant Park in downtown Craig, the first time a presidential candidate has campaigned in Moffat County. On Thursday, city officials said the multi-agency effort to host and staff the campaign rally went off without a hitch. There were no arrests made during the event. “I saw Secret Service kick one kid out of a tree he climbed across the street,” Craig Mayor Terry Carwile said. “That was about the extent of it, and I think the community can take a lot of pride in how it responded to the event.”
