I have quietly sat back and observed the pro and con debate taking place about the Bear Ranch's proposed land exchange and feel it's time I speak up and explain why I support Mr. Koch, the Bear Ranch and the proposed exchange. The Bear Ranch has continued to support our communities by insisting on working with local businesses.
Even when some businesses out of the area bid on proposals and priced materials at cheaper prices, ranch manager Rob Gill hired local contractors and bought from local suppliers. They have been very conscious of being good stewards of the land with their weed control and ranch management plans, including the care they have taken to disturb as little of the surrounding land as possible when building fences and upgrading areas in and around the ranch.
Lastly, I think it is time that people know how generous Mr. Koch and his companies have been over the years. They regularly make donations to local food pantries, 4-H programs, many of the schools and booster clubs, the Cocker Kids Foundation and many more groups and organizations. This is why I support the Bear Ranch, the proposed exchange AND Mr. Koch.
