Election bloodletting

Dear Editor:Just a word from one of the many that cares. This past election campaign saw some of the saddest bloodletting I can recall in any previous local election. Maybe I haven’t paid enough attention to how much hatred has been spread in the past, or not recognized it for what it was. There have been some pretty contemptuous issues and actions politically. So, perhaps I am wrong.The words and accusations from both sides actively involved in the Burlingame debate were sharp and pointed. I doubt harmony can ever be reached again within the greater Aspen community.I shed a tear for Aspen.Ron BaarAspen
