There’s a man running around the county talking about small towns and whether or not they have a future. Earlier this month, he visited Raton.
Given the topic, I’ll bet he gets a lot of speaking engagements. Raton is just one of thousands of small towns that are struggling, as urbanization builds up the cities and decimates rural communities everywhere.
His name is David J. Ivan, he hails from Michigan and he’s been studying the plight of small towns for years now.
