Remembering Curt Stewart

Curt Stewart’s obituary in the Times saddened me. I worked closely with him for several years while he was county manager and I was a commissioner. During those intensely controversial times, he was always upbeat, a pleasure to work with. One memory: He and I went to Glenwood to ask the Garfield commissioners for a contribution to the Pitkin County bus system (precursor to Roaring Fork Transportation Authority). As expected, the conversation took about two minutes. Despite the flat refusal, Curt remained cheery.
