Letter: Garfield County as model

I know many of you adults, kids, bankers and business executives don’t watch your local televised government meetings, but do watch the July 11 Garfield County Board of Commissioners meeting. You can find it here: http://tinyurl.com/GarCoJuly11.

You will truly like the exceptional performance rating of Garfield County in rural Colorado and in rural America, which is ongoing.

If you put on your thinking caps, it should dawn on you that Garfield County can do so much better in the next five or six years than expected by economists or Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank bigwigs.

Watch and listen to Colorado State Demographer Elizabeth Garner testify to the Garfield County Board of Commissioners about the amazing performance and resiliency of Garfield County as model for Colorado and nationwide.

I say take local small business capital formation capabilities and economic geographic efficiencies to a higher level by attracting hedge fund, private equity, insurance company and venture capitalist money.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Gather around the Garfield County Board of Commissioners to show everybody you’ve got what it takes because time and opportunities can be very fleeting. I’ve got my business development sights on Rifle, Colorado: fashion industry, business incubator, restaurant and food industry restructuring and tech startups.
