A person with tremendous compassion, Paul and his team work daily to reduce the number of child abuse neglect cases ­­— especially with children in very challenging situations ­— while always striving to keep children in a family setting. “Thad and the people that work for him do some of the most important work in local government, and frankly, the most difficult work,” said Larimer County Commissioner Tom Donnelly.
