Letter: Education over recreation

Education over recreation

Until our schools are the top in the state, I think it’s a terrible idea to raise taxes to pay for a recreation center.

Everyone I am talking to agrees that our schools should have priority over a recreation center.

I hope the Basalt community decides to vote down the recreation center and focuses on giving our great teachers more tools and resources.
