Craig briefs: Craig Daily Press, KRAI to host candidate forum
The Craig Daily Press and KRAI will host a Moffat County candidates’ forum at 6 p.m. June 5 at the Centennial Mall. Currently, the Moffat County Commissioner District 3 race is the only contested race. Best Western Plus Deer Park Inn & Suites owner Frank Moe and Moffat County Emergency Manager Coordinator Tom Soos are running against each other for the commissioner seat, which currently is occupied by Tom Mathers. Colorado’s primary election will take place June 24, when voters will decide which of the two Republican candidates will make it onto the November ballot. Other uncontested candidates also will have an opportunity to speak about why they’re running for elected office.
Moffat County mail-in ballots will be mailed to registered voters June 2, Moffat County Clerk and Recorder Lila Herod said.

Ruth Rose Hutton was a fighter. As she aged, multiple falls compromised her independence, but her spirit endured. She always seemed to recover, surprising her doctors and family, who were grateful to have her in their lives until her death at age 87.
