Northrup will represent all of Senate District 18

Posted

Dear Editor:

I support David Northrup for state senator of District 18. His experience as a state representative has been very productive for Powell and ALL of Park County.

David’s support of economic development and that of education has been very steady and with CARE for the FUTURE of all of Park County. His interest in the maintenance of the highways helps the tourist-related businesses displayWyoming to visitors of Yellowstone and our national forests in a welcoming light.

Tim French was in the county commissioners’ office when I was in Powell’s city office as administrator. In that time, over a four-year term plus, I saw him in Powell City Hall twice. He received substantial support from the Powell area, without much in return.

The only project I can remember Mr. French working on was a new building at the county fairgrounds, which came to be Heart Mountain Hall. The then-county commissioners, including Tim French, challenged the county fair board to raise $500,000 toward the construction of the building.

“Common sense” says you must give a board more than six months to raise that kind of money. Obviously, the board wasn’t able to do so.

Subsequently, French led a campaign with the county commissioners to “find” plus or minus $495,000 from the county reserves for construction. To replace an old facility in the county fairgrounds was good, but to expect the fair board to raise that much money on such a notice was ill advised.

During his extended time as county commissioner he served the ag community well; the rest of us would have appreciated him being more interested in the rest of Park County.

Please put your confidence in Dave Northrup for District 18 State Senator. He represented ALL of Park County while in the Wyoming House in the past.
