LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
MEET MICHAEL ARCHER, FNP
After a series of conversations that began several years ago with the staff at the Independent and our suggestion that he share his perspective with readers, Linly Stum has (finally) decided to put his thoughts on paper for others to consider.
Many years ago, I was a very active Republican to the point that we were witnesses in both the House and Senate hearings in Washington DC and the House in Denver. I’ve also had 3 governor appointments.
Teresa Witte, who had been Kiowa County’s Emergency Manager since 2015, resigned from her position as of February 28, 2020. At that point, the Kiowa County Commissioners offered the position to existing county employees first, and Shellie Engelhardt was hired to replace Teresa. Shellie had worked on occasion with Teresa in the past few months and is very interested in emergency planning.
