Hello, Kiowa County!

I hope that you all are doing well. I know that we have all been wishing we could just get back to normal. Unfortunately, we do not know when this will happen.

I know that this past year was challenging for you as it has been for everybody. We cannot let the past dim our future. It is my hope that we can move forward to a more successful and involved year.
