Many are calling Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid the voice of reason on hot button topics in the national political arena. Most recently, the Washington Times featured Commissioner Kinkaid’s response to President Obama’s announcement that a Chicago lakefront park will be bulldozed in order to build his presidential library. Critics nationwide are pointing to the plan as an example of hypocrisy as Obama is known for blocking development around the country in the name of protecting the environment. The Washington Post chose to feature Commissioner Kinkaid’s response as representative of the public outcry. “Apparently, Obama is a radical environmentalist, until it is inconvenient or applies to him,” shared Kinkaid. “He has used the EPA to pound down goodpaying American jobs for almost eight years.” Obama’s plan for the $550 million dollar presidential library is scheduled to be completed by 2021.
