Goudy for CMC

Dear Editor:

Colorado Mountain College needs trustees with energy, brains and vision. As a taxpayer-subsidized institution, trustees must be accessible, listen to the communities comments and understand the fiscal accountability to the taxpayers. Kathy Goudy, a local attorney from Carbondale, should be our next trustee. Please vote for her.

It’s important for CMC and its curriculum to serve the constantly evolving civic, social, religious, and vocational needs of our mountain region. By its actions, the board must emphasize a commitment to the community, faculty, staff and students and to the academic opportunities they deserve and desire. The overall budget must aim to support the classroom and rigorous financial oversight is crucial as CMC faces the challenges of operating and expansion costs. CMC’s statutory mandate is to provide all citizens access to a varied range of academic, vocational, life skills and enrichment courses.

Kathy Goudy is a community volunteer and is more than able to handle this crucial moment for locals to help guide and support CMC. Even as the school enters a new era of expansion into a four-year institution of higher learning and construction, CMC must, like all of us, deal with uncertain economic times. CMC faces these challenges along with a budget-stressed community. In these economic times, CMC becomes all the more crucial as an academically rigorous yet financially achievable option to many universities and their soaring tuition.

We are entitled to get the most bang for our tax dollars, and Kathy Goudy is the person to do it for us.

Theresa Dwyer
