Keep AVH mill levy

Dear Editor:

I would like to encourage all registered voters in the Aspen Valley Hospital District to vote yes on Ballot Issue A for the renewal of the hospital mill levy. As a former employee of more than 16 years and an occasional patient, I have seen AVH from inside and out. I also had the pleasure of working with many wonderful community members on the first mill levy campaign.

The citizens of Aspen and Pitkin County have supported their community hospital for well over 100 years, from the miners donating a portion of their pay to the game dinners and hospital ski days. Not to mention the hundreds of devoted volunteers helping to supplement the incredible care that the staff provides. It is a minuscule price to support this fabulous institution.
