District #1 County Commissioner Doug Atchley has announced he is seeking a second term in November.
In announcing his run for re-election, Atchley noted his support of the local mining and agriculture industries.
"My first term has been very challenging," he said. "Delta County continues to have many economic trials, and with the current economy, many more obstacles are on the horizon. Jobs for citizens have been and continue to be a top priority. Two of Delta County's major industries, coal and agriculture, have encountered significant hurdles, which I have fought every step of the way.
"I will continue to fight against those who would harm Delta County's important energy source and agricultural way of life," he said.blog comments powered by Disqus
