Moffat County residents pose questions during Bears Ears Patriots forum
It’s been more than 50 years since a Moffat County resident was elected to state office and on Thursday Jo Ann Baxter asked her community for its support in her bid for Colorado House District 57. Baxter, a Craig Democrat, is running for HD57 against Carbondale Republican Bob Rankin. During closing statements Thursday night at the latest Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots candidate forum, Baxter said she recognized voting for a Democrat would be a tough decision for a lot of hometown voters, but pledged to build off her experience as an educator and as a Moffat County School Board member to foster relationships in the state legislature.
