Harvey for Carbondale

Dear Editor:

I was recently talking to my friend and potential Town Council member Allyn Harvey about what makes Carbondale such a great place to be. Being a glass-is-half-empty-and-if-you-look-closely-there’s-a-chip-in-it type of person, I was lamenting about one-third of our population wanting to eat red lobster while wearing red argyle.

“They’re going to take over!” I whined. Allyn disagreed and pointed out that actually they are shrinking in number compared with the last time Carbondale voted on use of the land at Highway 133 and Main Street.

He said, “Everything we need is here. We just need to support it. Beef. Music. Art. Beer. Yoga. Pot. Pastries. Coffee. Fruit. Vegetables. Do you really need socks and underwear?”

I instantly cheered up and replied, “Go commando! Underwear is so our grandparents’ generation, just like oil and gas.”

And that is why I would vote for Allyn Harvey for Board of Trustees. He gets Carbondale. And he’ll make sure it remains an outstanding place to be.
