The City of Moab as taken several steps forward in their recent hires. I have heard only positive comments about the new police chief. Personally, I like the positive focus he has — the kudos he hands out to deserving officers and the reporting of their professionalism.

I had been hoping for several months that we would somehow entice David Everett to stay on as city administrator, so I was happy when he decided to do so. We also have a new communications person and who could be better than a former journalist, a person with skills already in place for dealing with the media.

With many difficult decisions ahead for Moab, I think we are headed in the right direction. Thanks to all of you who have taken an active role in these changes.
