Opinionby County commissioners lead a good-faith effort by hardworking stakeholders with diverse aims to resolve the wilderness study area issue — a fact critical broadsides have failed to acknowledge.
Pete Obermueller is the executive director of the Wyoming County Commissioners Association, a post he has held since November 2013.
