Former candidate supports trio

Dear Editor:

I am withdrawing as a candidate for Carbondale town trustee and throwing my support to Allyn Harvey, Pam Zentmyer and John Hoffmann.

It is too late for me to withdraw my name from the ballot, and I apologize to those who have voted for me and already have cast their ballots. I appeal to those Carbondale voters who have not yet voted to vote for Harvey, Zentmyer and Hoffmann. I believe these three are best suited to the task of preventing Carbondale, like Aspen before it, from falling into the clutches of the super-rich who, without fail, always try to use their money to buy from others what they have been unable to create for themselves.

Carbondale can continue to grow, but sensibly. There is no hurry. We are fine as we are, and we’ll get better carefully.

Jim Breasted
