Ballot results a key signal

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

I appreciate your support for my continued contributions to the Basalt Town Council.

However, I think it is important to note that if I am not elected mayor, I will have to leave the council in two years because of term limits. I will not be able to run in 2006. If I am elected mayor, I will remain on the council four years and will be able to run for re-election.

It is also important to note that there is a distinction between being a mayor and being a councilperson. The mayor is in a position to act as a spokesperson for the town and to address issues as a leader. The results of the mayoral election also will send an important signal as to how Basalt citizens feel about growth.

Anne Freedman

Basalt town councilwoman

and mayoral candidate
