Media not the only ones mad

(This letter was originally addressed to Mayor Helen Klanderud.)

“The personal calls and e-mails I’ve gotten and the people who I’m running into on the street have all (emphasis added) supported my decision.” – Aspen Daily News, Sept. 15.

While I’m not convinced that the above statement is accurate, here’s an e-mail from someone who does not support your decision. The simple fact is that you reneged on a promise, one that played a part in your 49-vote-margin election win.

It most certainly is not only the newspapers who are very unhappy with you.
