District 3 County Commissioner Mark Roeber has told the DCI he is filing the required paperwork and announcing his intention to run for a second term as county commissioner.
Roeber said he planned to make the official announcement at the Tuesday, Feb. 2, meeting of the Delta County Republican Central Committee. That official announcement date was too late for coverage in this week's DCI.
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
