Make an effort to keep construction dollars in Grand County
August 9, 2009
To the Editor:
I wish to express my opinion about the construction in our county. I have worked here many years and have been proud to help the county expand and grow, but now I see many out-of-county and even out-of-state companies get our work.
I have no problem with this, but we should be thinking where our money goes – not here in our bank or credit unions. I and many other men and women who helped build our county are not working now and need to. Winter is coming for us and times will get hard.
I used to drive Highway 40 and say I helped build that – no more. Now I say “who built that?”
I know people come here and build and it helps economy, but what about builders who live here? We live here and need our governments to help us keep our pride. Maybe if they think of us and not try save money, which never will happen, we all know, we will be better off.
Keep our dollars in Grand County.
