A stand-up guy

Dear Editor:Although arthritic knees may keep us from still skiing the Bowl, we seniors are a vital part of the community and enjoy the consideration and respect of others. Mick Ireland has always treated us with the utmost dignity and always has been concerned with our well-being.He helped lead the successful Helping from the Heart campaigns for funding of services not only for seniors, but also environmental groups and nonprofits that assist the less fortunate and improve the day-to-day lives of all the citizens in our county. Mick is not against growth and jobs but feels like many, particularly those of us with many decades of experience in life, that there are other things to live for than just money – quality of life, our environment and our community. Mick has always had the reputation of being the watchdog for the ordinary folks. He is a stand-up guy with no special interests in his background.I am voting for Mick Ireland because I know he will be the mayor that will protect our wonderful town so that my children and grandchildren have the opportunity to also enjoy a great life here.Bob Nix Sr.Aspen
