Ray DuBois: Compelling reasons to vote ‘yes’ on 1A, 3A

— I have been closely following the debate about whether Moffat County needs a new hospital, a new middle school and upgrades to our other school buildings.

In my opinion, the advocacy groups who have been working to inform the public about Referendums 1A and 3A have done a superb job. Not only have they given us the information we need to make an informed decision, they have also given us compelling reasons why we should support these improvements.

Because I am associated with one of the top ten taxpayers in Moffat County, I cannot take these kinds of issues lightly.

It is my duty to know how these sorts of things affect our employees and our business. Any undue burden placed on either of these can have a severe negative impact on our future and our quality of life.

The two referendums on this year’s ballot will help improve the quality of life in Northwest Colorado well into the future.

I have voted against various referendums in the past not because I was necessarily against a particular request, but because there were too many unanswered questions for me to make an informed decision.

This, however, is not the case with the requests being made by the The Memorial Hospital and Moffat County School District.

Every question that I have had, as well as others that I have heard and read about have, in my opinion, been thoroughly answered.

Therefore, after having all of my doubts sufficiently erased, I marched right down to the court house today and voted to improve our community.

Please join me in voting “yes” on Referendums 1A and 3A.
