Jim Isgar Named Kroeger Replacement on SWCD Board

It seems apropos that Senator Jim Isgar (D-Hesperus) was named Kroegers replacement on the SWCD Board by the La Plata County Board of County Commissioners. After all, Isgar got his start in business with a little help from Kroeger. Fred put up the loan on a 10-acre barley field Jim had gotten permission to cultivate. Years later, Kroeger helped Isgar make his way into politics as an early supporter. "If you were an advocate for agriculture or water, Fred would support you regardless of your party," said Isgar. Jim was sworn-in to the SWCD Board on June 4th. The SWCD is pleased and proud to welcome Jim Isgar as the newest member to their Board of Directors.
