A broken promise

Dear Editor:

Is there anyone out there who was here in Aspen and part of the original acquisition of the Youth Center property? It was made crystal clear that in order for this property to be sold to the city of Aspen, it would always remain a place for the kids to go “in town” to hang out, be safe and have fun.

It seems all the current officials have decided to have selective memory at this time and ignore the promises made at every meeting I attended. I have lost respect for all of you.

Please, if you were involved and remember the promise, hold those accountable who are not keeping their word. If they are currently running for office do not vote for them unless they come clean and do the right thing. Keep this space for the kids in town.
