Tammy Stewart: Putting in resignation

Putting in resignation
To the editor:
To the citizens of Moffat County: I have resigned as the assistant Moffat County attorney and the Craig Alcohol Compliance hearing officer.
I was deeply hurt and shocked by election results of Moffat County voters. I cared deeply about Moffat County and took pride in serving the county. I was a local candidate. I took a $180 an hour pay cut to come protect the children of Moffat County at the Department of Social Services.
I commuted two hours on my own time, own gas, own vehicle and received no county benefits. I also gave many uncompensated hours toward my job as the Craig Alcohol Compliance hearing officer.
I did it to protect children. I did this at a great financial sacrifice to my own family. I will no longer be able to make that financial sacrifice and have therefore resigned as the assistant county attorney.

The nearly 70 percent vote against me, strictly along party lines, has led me to believe I am not the best candidate to be the Craig hearing officer, as well.
I appreciate the wonderful people I worked with in the Department of Social services and the time I spent there.
I wish the very best to the many kind people I met in Moffat and pray for prosperity and peace for the county as a whole.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
