Johnson belongs on BOCC

Dear Editor:

Last week I attended the public forum for Pitkin County commissioners. While we are lucky to have many good candidates, I believe two stood out for particularly different reasons. I will vote for Jack Johnson, as I believe he is the most qualified and experienced. On the other hand and in my opinion, I believe Rob Ittner would mean nothing more than a rubber stamp candidate for pro growth and for Marilyn Marks’ flawed agenda.

All one has to do is look at the boarded up construction sites, to see the failure of past political mistakes, which I believe Rob Ittner would promote. We need local leadership, not candidates who are beholden to out-of-town agendas that would hurt the quality of life Aspen deserves.
