Oh yes the birthday club, that was so fun. He and his voice will be missed.
Your probably right about the sheep, they aren't such a big deal. Although the sheep put Craig on the map with Dirty Jobs show. Was she demoted? unlike the other hard working board members that were kicked off, Commissioner Audrey Danner must have thought she was valuale enough to keep as an alternate
Commissioner Tom Gray said he didn’t like the thought of overhauling the board, and that the commission’s decision was in no way a reflection of the service that current and past board members gave to the community.
“I think we do practice rotating positions of boards,” Gray said, referring to an informal policy of giving as many residents as possible a chance to volunteer. “I think we had an inordinate number of terms expiring right now.”
About reaching outside the county, who else on the board accompanied her to an expo in Denver, Governors conference in Denver, program in Pueblo, and Grand Junction, even though she had been demoted to Alternate. Looks like a few are the worker bees and the rest are the queen bees
I agree with Heartache, Melody seems to be conducting herself in a professional manner and just doing the job. There does seem to be alot of politicing, involved with this hiring endeavor, unlike when Michelle Balleck was uneventfully hired a year ago.
Melody Villard has been marketing their ranch on a local and national level for 15 years Selling hunters on what a great opportunity they have here. Creatively marketing their products, Lamb and wool. She owns and operates Villard Bertique on line. But 4 years ago she used her marketing skills on site at the store. She has great artistic talent, ask the Parrot Head club who whipped out their Toddy Bar signs at the Winter Festival. She lost out last year to Michelle Balleck who had a college education. That did not stop her from continuing to work with the MTCA which she seems to love. She may not have a paper saying how qualified she is, but she has proven it with her work.
I believe in what Bryce Jacobson is passionate about and that is SHOP LOCAL. I feel that we also need to HIRE LOCAL. Melody Villard has only been an alternate since January 2010. She has been very active on the board for 2 years. Being elected board chairperson for the 2009 year. She was asked to step down until the hiring processess was completed, which she cordially did. This was asked of her due to Michelle Balleck's insecurity about a comment made in a public meeting. Melody Villard has lived here her entire life, that should qualify her for HIRE LOCAL. Especially when that local has a working knowledge of the boards directions and how it operates. She can save the county time and money as she is ready to go today. There would be no lag time in completing things as she is already trained.
Liquor stores don't have other lines of products to sustain them if the convience stores expand their liquor lines. The Convience store do have other lines of products ot sustain them if they don't expand their liquor lines. I think it would only be a first step and would eventually hurt the liquor stores in Craig. Support your local businesses not big corporate stores
The new board looks more like the Facebook clique of Michelle Balleck and Christina Currie.
We need a MCTA director that is mature, positive, a self starter and passionate about Moffat County. If professional this person could work well in any setting. A director like that would be a compliment to the board
