From The Mountain Mail (Ron Sering):

Three returning directors and a new one were sworn in Thursday during the regular Upper Arkansas Water Conservancy District meeting in Salida. Taking the oath of office for four year terms were returning directors Jeff Ollinger of Chaffee County and Tom French and William McGuire, both of Fremont County. Tom Goodwin of Fremont County, appointed by a panel of three district judges, was sworn to the at-large seat vacated by Pat Alderton of Poncha Springs. Goodwin is former Bureau of Land Management field office manager and U.S. Forest Service district ranger for the Saguache district field office. He retired from the Forest Service in 2007. Goodwin is the son of former UAWCD member and long-time board chairman Denzel Goodwin.

  1. Mr. Goodwin seems to be vastly more qualified than Mrs. Alderton was when she took her seat on the board. She was also a bit of a control freak/troublemaker, from all accounts. May the board move FORWARD and efficiently with the new leaders at its helm.
