To the Editor:

Listening to Gordon Larson engage with questioners at last week’s meet and greet in Canyon City gave me a renewed sense of hope and optimism for the future of Grant County. Not only did Mr. Larson emphasize repeatedly his intention, as county commissioner, to listen respectfully to diverse opinions, but indeed demonstrated that very quality during some vigorous questioning that night. He also made it clear that he would take the time to study and reflect upon an issue, seeking input from constituents countywide, rather than being pushed into an uninformed, hasty decision; this, too, was evident in his responses during the meeting. I am encouraged by the vision I glimpsed that night of county government conducted in a courteous manner by people of goodwill coming together to seek solutions and build a more positive atmosphere in this county we call home.
