Jim Loughran: Vote for DeRose

To the editor:

In the past month some have wondered “Who is Dave?”

Dave DeRose is a candidate for Moffat County Commissioner. He is a successful businessman, sponsor of adult and youth programs, mentor of future businessmen, and has experience in local government as our past Craig Mayor.

I would like to take this opportunity to mention one example of Dave’s deep concern and commitment to our community.

In 2005, Moffat County High School athletics was in need of replacing aging scoreboards and money wasn’t available to do so. With Dave’s help a new concept of selling sponsorships on the scoreboards would generate the money needed to purchase the energy efficient boards.

Dave took on the project and within 2 days had enough sponsors to buy the boards.

Dave takes the time to do the little things that make a big difference for our community. He is committed to making it a better place for all ages to live.

Vote for Dave DeRose by November 6. He is the candidate that will lead Moffat County in a positive direction.
