Kerry Moe: ‘An exemplary candidate’

To the editor:

This is a letter of support for Dave DeRose, for Moffat County Commissioner in District 1.

I met Dave DeRose towards the end of 1987, due to a plumbing emergency call for a hotel my husband and I worked for when we first moved to Craig. It was the middle of the night, the hotel was out of hot water, and he came to our aid without hesitation.

I immediately liked Dave, admired his knowledge and steadfast commitment to excellence, and over the years, have found him to be an integral part of our own business success. He has always been there for us professionally, and personally.

I feel confident Dave will do the same for Moffat County.

As a business owner, developer, and job creator, Dave DeRose has a true knowledge in understanding what it takes to develop a business here in Moffat County. He has demonstrated with skill what it takes to sustain a business, and to go beyond the ordinary to make his business successful.

Dave recognizes the challenges, the sacrifices, and the commitments necessary to make a budget, to live by a budget, and to make an effective and productive payroll. Dave knows how to market his business as well as recruit, motivate and sustain excellent talent, evidenced by the exceptional staff that he has working for him as well as offering excellent service and products to this community.

I believe Dave also has a fundamental grasp for dealing with many different types of people in varying circumstances. I feel Moffat County will greatly benefit from having someone with his skills working for all of us, and actively reaching out for the benefit of our county.

I believe Dave comprehends the importance of establishing effective and open communication skills, even with people that may not necessarily appreciate our way of life in rural Moffat County. I believe he has the ability to promote, protect, and advocate for all of Moffat County’s resources, without condemnation or the disparagement of others.

I believe Dave has the foresight necessary to utilize not only his wealth of overall experiences, but those of the good people who will be working with him, to further the success of Moffat County into an ever changing and more demanding world. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we have a proven and experienced business leader from the private sector to facilitate those same dynamic and competitive influences to the public sector, thereby enhancing and positioning Moffat County towards an even greater future.

Please join me in supporting Dave DeRose, an exemplary candidate for Moffat County Commissioner, District 1.

With regards,

Kerry Moe
