Less is more

Dear Editor:Think long and hard about voting for Eagle County home rule. If you’ve read the campaign literature, it appears a majority of it was written by current and past Basalt politicos. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never met a politician that didn’t salivate at the idea of more tax dollars, especially around Basalt.If you think you have trouble dealing with three commissioners on the other side of the hill, just wait until you have to deal with FOUR over there, plus another one on this side, as well. Forget the odds – who’s having trouble with addition here?Oh, yeah, one more thing. It’s like self-medication – if three will work, five ought to be just grand. Good luck, and I hope you don’t wake up with an unwanted hangover!Tony VagneurUnincorporated Eagle County
