Editor’s note: The following letter was originally sent to the Pitkin Board of County Commissioners.Dear Editor:Having viewed with interest the Board of County Commissioners meeting of July 21 regarding the Sutey Ranch and BLM land swap, and as a Pitkin County resident, I believe this exchange has merit. Please give consideration to the citizens of Garfield County who wish to preserve open space. As a Pitkin County resident, this swap seems to be a no-brainer.I am perplexed by the attitude of some of our officials who feel that only Pitkin County has all the answers. Please show more understanding toward our neighbors’ concerns in Garfield and Eagle counties. As a voter, I also support term limits. We need “representative government” not “entrenched interests.”Jim MarkalunasAspen
