Call it even

Dear Editor:

I was incorrectly listed in the Feb. 18 article, “Guess who’s coming to dinner,” as having spent $300 of city funds at Matsuhisa on April 30, 2007. I did receive a gift certificate to Montagna for $200 as an award in 2007, which my wife and I enjoyed on our anniversary, so perhaps there was a reporting mix-up.

I am proud to have been an Aspen Police Officer, and I am offended by the general tone of the article. I suspect that in my eight years of service that I skipped $200 worth of meals, so let’s call it even.
