From The Chamber


Yesterdays luncheon featured the majority of men and women who are running for an elected office (Rim Country) in the upcoming elections. What did we learn ? We learned that every single one of the people who made time to be with us absolutely loves this county, these towns and its people. We learned that we fellow Gila county residents should be thankful that people like them live among us and we should find inspiration in their actions. These are not career politicians even though a few have been repeatedly elected to office. They are all business people, teachers, officers of the law, servicemen, book keepers, mothers, fathers and friends first. They don't make a living by being elected (ok technically the sheriff and possibly the supervisors but they aren't in it for the money) these are real people who care about Rim Country and their fellow citizens so much they're willing and wanting to do something to improve it. It's too bad we can't support them all.
