Tough decision in commissioner district 1
To the Editor:
Running for county commissioner in district 1 are two very qualified candidates who are both friends of mine. Deciding who to support has come down to one qualifying factor. In the four decades I have been interacting with county commissioners, James Newberry ranks among the top two for commissioners who have done the most for Grand County. I completely agree with him on subjects going way beyond his representation on our water issues. Either candidate brings a lot of talent to the office, but James brings talent seldom found in leadership anywhere.
