Remember when Moffat County put forth a ballot measure to vote on seceding from the state? What a shining example of how to not blow an emotional gasket when you don't get your way.
That west to east flow blew all that hot air that Lance is spouting over here to the front range and it stinks.
Mr. Scranton is smart enough to know that a public high school teacher ought to recuse themselves from penning partisan opinion pieces in the local paper.
Hey, Commissioners, you are marginalized by the state capital because the people of Colorado don't embrace your antiquated ideals. Democrats felt marginalized for decades before finally putting together a platform that the people embraced. You can kick and scream and throw as many temper tantrums as you want - but the fact remains you are in the minority and you're going to have to find a more effective way to govern because nobody is going to approve a 51st state. In the meantime, you are merely embarrassing yourselves and the rational people in the county.
Nadja, I don't really object to a secession... I'm just pointing out the childish nature of the idea. Republicans controlled the state basically from 1968-2004, and now that the tables have turned they want to start their own state? Good luck with that.
These are typical GOP tactics - when you don't get your way, take your ball and go home. The laughable part to me is that republicans have only been in the minority in Colorado for what amounts to the blink of an eye in the grand scheme of things - and the second things start to go against them they want to secede from the state? Maybe these elected officials should do a better job affecting legislation. On the other hand, I kind of like the idea of taking your antiquated ideals elsewhere. They wouldn't be missed over here on the front range.
Craig ought to just go be a part of Utah or Wyoming. The local government doesn't seem to have any use for the state government (guns, marijuana, clean energy), so let them go be a part of another state that suits the community better.
What's next? An argument against education and enlightenment? Here's an idea - let's keep people like Matt Winey out instead of progressives who actually use their brains.
I think there is a compelling case to extend the term limits in a rural community like Craig. As was already mentioned multiple times - it's not like we're indefinitely extending their tenure, they still have to get re-elected. But at least this way we aren't arbitrarily getting rid of quality leaders.
I think term limits are more important on the state and national levels where the talent pool is larger and the stakes are higher.
I would like to see MCHS athletics succeed as much as the next person, but some of you need to be more realistic. People aren't beating down doors to come be the next AD and live in Craig, CO.
