To the Editor:
How would you encourage the older generation in Grant County to open their eyes to what will make Grant County a good place for young people to live? That was a question asked of Gordon Larson at his last meet and greet in Canyon City. The speaker also said that she believes young people want to stay in Grant County, but they need better job opportunities, better internet and more input into how our county is run. She pointed out that some of the county elders are looking backwards into a time that they remember, instead of opening their eyes to what the younger generation needs. Now is the time to make a positive future for the young people in Grant County. I believe Gordon Larson understands that need and will work to make Grant County a place where young people can earn a living.
