When I have my opportunity to speak before the Garfield Country Commissioner about the Grand Staircase, I will open with this remark:
“Most locals seem to think that I have a birth defect.
I was not born in Garfield County, so I don’t seem to have a voice.”
There are two tribes in Garfield County.
Those that were born here and have never left.
New people who moved here from elsewhere and have different ideas.
“Those that never left are always right (at least they think so).”
