CRAIG, Colo. (AP) — Moffat County could be moving toward secession from Colorado under the 51st State Initiative because of concerns they are being ignored.

Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid announced his intention Tuesday to write the ballot language that would ask local voters on the Western Slope whether they want to join the secession movement that has gained momentum on the Front Range on the other side of the state.

According to the Associated Press, Kinkaid said Moffat County could either join up with the 51st state proposed for the Front Range or maybe become part of Wyoming.

Officials in Wyoming were not amused.

A spokesman for Gov. Matt Mead, Renny MacKay, said, “This discussion does not move us forward.”
