Lila Herod: Thank you, voters

To the editor:

I want to send a big thank you to all the voters of Moffat County. Thank you for your support of my candidacy for Moffat County Clerk and Recorder.

This has definitely been an interesting and challenging year.

After my campaign was challenged under the federal Hatch Act and I was forced to resign my 20 years of employment with Moffat County, I thought this would be the longest and most depressing and dreadful year.

Instead, I will remember this as a year full of wonderful memories and blessings.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

I’ve learned that best laid plans often go awry and if you want the best to happen, you must make the best of what happens.

That is much easier to do when surrounded with the love and support of family and friends.

Joe and I would like to send a very special thanks to John and Corrie Ponikvar and to Dave and Linda DeRose for their most loyal friendship.

Through thick and thin, they are always with us and their friendship is a priceless treasure.

Over the past eight months, many of you have seen me out driving the little NAPA Auto Parts truck. What an incredible “ride.”

My co-workers at NAPA are the most hardworking, professional, and dedicated group of individuals I have ever had the privilege to work with. It will be one of my goals to emulate their work ethic and level of customer service. I also want to thank all the guys (and gals) in the mechanic shops around town for sharing my NAPA adventure.

I’ve enjoyed meeting each of you and watching the work you do. Thank you for all the laughs and smiles.

Every day you helped make my day brighter.

A big thank you also goes to Stephanie Beckett and Tammy Raschke at the county clerk’s office. They have really stepped up and carried on the work Elaine and I have done for so many years in the election department.

It is so true that challenges make you stronger and define your character. Now, I’m ready for this new challenge. Thank you for this honor, to serve as your next county clerk.
