A hypothetical vote

Dear Editor:

If I lived in Pitkin County, I would vote for George Newman for Pitkin County Commissioner.

The next four years look to be some of the most challenging our region has ever faced. George has the vision, passion, and commitment that will be needed to keep Pitkin County at the forefront of good land use planning, which in turn will affect Basalt and the midvalley. George is a tireless leader who will throw his support behind open space, trails and transit, affordable housing, and the environment. Now, more than ever, we’re going to need people who see the big picture and can get the job done. Please vote for George!
