As with all things, it takes a team to achieve success in nearly all endeavors. As a member of the Board of County Commissioners, working with other elected officials, Moffat County department heads & employees, plus other government bodies and people from the community, the following projects and initiatives have happened or have been completed, in which I played a part in.
Frank Moe with William "Billy" Kirkland and Roz Leighton
1. After President Trump was elected I took my opportunity to establish strong ties and contacts with the Trump administration, when I had my first contact with Roz Leighton, Regional Political Director, White House Office of Political Affairs.
I explained to her our experience during the 8 years of the Obama administrations "War on Coal and Coal Fired Power Plants."
I emailed her the video " The Perfect Storm Over Craig, Colorado, as well as news articles about our county and other economic and other political information, and then I once again, took the conversation to the next level and asked, "Who can I talk with that can give our county the personal attention and care we need so we could overcome the Obama Years?"
She introduced me to William "Billy" Kirkland Special Assistant to the President & Deputy Director White House Intergovernmental Affairs.
I reached out to "Billy", again addressed our unique economic situation and arranged for the Board of County Commissioner's to send a letter to President Trump. Within weeks Commissioner Ray Beck and Natural Resources Director Jeff Comstock, along with other members from Club 20 and Associated Governments of Northwest Colorado were meeting with Department of the Interior Director Zinke concerning Sage Grouse and other issues. Their meetings have produced great results including having a seat at the table and a voice on the State of Colorado Grouse Plan.
2. East Kum and Go Project by the Moffat County Fairgrounds.
Before and After: Moffat County County sold the property the shop was on to to Kum and Go. The proceeds were used to build a new shop and clean the site. The county is now receiving even more real estate taxes from the new and expanded store.
