County’s latest action sends wrong message

Outside the major population centers of the Front Range, Mesa County has more residents than any county in Colorado.

This is no rural backwater. Mesa County has big potential and civic leaders are constantly trying to leverage its size, location and amenities to create new opportunities.

But Mesa County commissioners seem oblivious to these efforts. Their recent actions, including the naming of an internal candidate as a finalist for the county administrator’s job, reflect a small-minded, provincial attitude that doesn’t mesh with the image of a dynamic, growing community.
