Moffat County commissioners are giving voters the option to secede from Colorado.
The commissioners voted 2-1 to put secession on the ballot at their Tuesday meeting. Moffat County Commissioner Chuck Grobe was the only one who expressed dissent. He said the proposal had been pushed forward too hastily.
But County Commissioners Tom Mathers and John Kinkaid have been enthusiastic about the idea of a secession referendum since Kinkaid brought it up at last week’s meeting.
The majority in the packed meeting room Tuesday stood up to voice their support.
