Response from Bill Dvorak to Bob Nicoll's letter
October 20, 2016
Last night when I returned from the County Commissioner’s candidate forum, I learned of a post from Bob Nicolls in the Salida Citizen and the website it pointed to. Reading the letter posted I became angry and immediately wanted to correct Bob Nicolls many factual errors and to retaliate by pointing out similar violations and fines that Greg Felt and many of the Arkansas River companies regularly incur.
But as I realized that someone had actually gone to the trouble of building an entire website to show our company was fined for not having enough gauze in our first aid kit or having our name and address written in the wrong spot on our rafts, my anger was replaced by sadness.
Over the last year we have watched our national politics deteriorate to something that embarrasses us all. In Salida we have seen the vitriol tear our town apart. When I started this campaign I decided to focus my platform on Chaffee County’s issues and real difference between my opponent and myself. Greg Felt and I are both qualified and capable people and we are both good people. If I am lucky enough to win this election I don’t want it to be because I dug up more dirt on my opponents than they did on me. I hope you will look at all the candidates and their platforms and decide which one of us good people can best serve Chaffee County.
Sincerely, Bill Dvorak
