Let voters decide
Dear Editor:To be given the right to vote and to petition the government for the right to vote on something is a good thing.Aspenites voted on the pool, ice, playing fields, affordable housing projects such as Truscott, Marolt and Burlingame seasonal housing across from Buttermilk.I do not think these projects would be here today if voters did not ask for the right to vote on them.If you want Burlingame public housing to be built, you definitely want to sign the petition asking to vote on the annexation of the land for the public housing and free-market. If you do not have the land, you do not have a place to build the housing.If you do not want the Burlingame public housing to be built, you definitely want to sign the petition asking to vote on the annexation of the land for the public housing and free-market. If the land is not annexed, there is no place to build the affordable housing.It’s a win-win situation. Sign the petition so you do not lose your opportunity to vote on whether the city should annex the Bar/X Ranch land for development of Burlingame public housing and free-market development.Signing the referendum petition to put the question on the ballot, “Should the City of Aspen annex the Bar/X Ranch” is not for or against the annexation. Your signature is to simply put this very important question on the ballot for voters to decide yes or no.Add your name to the petition on Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. across from Paradise Bakery or call Bert (925-8645) or Toni (544-5427) to add your signature to the petition.Toni KronbergAspen
