Regarding a recent column in the Snowmass Sun regarding "lack of government experience" of some candidates for council, we, as second-home owners, have a different viewpoint.
Incumbency and prior government service doesn't necessarily produce the best community results. A council of capable citizens with diverse backgrounds such as teaching, entrepreneurship, business, law, other public service activities, etc., will generally produce balanced decisions.
Our community needs fresh people with new ideas participating in local decisions. Stan Stokes is such a person. He is an independent thinker, hardworking and is well liked and respected. He has lived here over 30 years, raised a family and owned and built a successful business. He knows the "mechanics" of how the Village works.
We hope the electorate will support Stan Stokes for Council.
