Bush league politics

Dear Editor:

I see the dirty politics of hate and smear has taken root in Aspen. The ugly attack on Jack Johnson by Elizabeth Milias and Marilyn Marks resembles the classless Swift Boat tactics of the Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh types.

If you are unable to argue the issues, attack the opponent personally. Aspen deserves representation from local leaders, not out-of-town speculators, pushing more growth and more empty shops. In my opinion, Rob Ittner is simply a rubber stamp for these failed policies promoted by Marilyn Marks and her backers. Aspen deserves better!
