Moffat County Extension agent resigns
January 24, 2018
CRAIG — Moffat County Extension Agent JD Sexton recently resigned his post to accept a position as an Extension agent in Logan County.
According to Moffat County Extension Administrative Supervisor Jackie Goodnow, Sexton left Moffat County at the end of December and is already working at his new position.
Colorado State University Extension will coordinate the hiring process to replace Sexton, and Goodnow said she expected a job posting would go out in the "next few weeks."
Moffat County and CSU fund the position's salary.
In the interim, Goodnow is handling some of the position's responsibilities, including the coordination of 4-H enrollment, which is open until Feb. 28.

"He was an amazing man, and he will be greatly missed," said Moffat County Fair Board Vice President Toni Raftopoulos. "I was very, very sad when I heard the news that he would be moving. He did wonderful things for the community, not just the fair board and the extension office, but for the community, itself."
Raftopoulos said Sexton’s departure likely would not impact the county's upcoming centennial fair, especially since the fair is still seven months away.
Sexton did not respond to several requests for comment via phone and email.
