Meet Mike Miles

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:I support Mike Miles for U.S. Senate because he has something that money can’t buy – integrity and conviction from the core, compassion and willingness to fight for people who are struggling and courage to take a strong stance on issues. You can count on him to walk his talk; he doesn’t calculate or manipulate with vague answers to win votes. For those of you who are tired of the status quo, he represents a clear choice for change. He promotes a clear vision for addressing things that aren’t working for us yet, like health care, education, increased use of alternative energy sources and more support for small businesses.For those of you concerned about national security issues, Miles is the U.S. senator who can ask intelligent questions based on his international experience in the diplomatic corps, his work in the State Department with NATO and chemical weapons, and his awareness as an Army Ranger officer commanding a counterterrorism unit. He was not and will not be misled by faulty or politicized intelligence.Miles is coming Monday, Aug. 2, to speak at the Village Smithy in Carbondale – breakfast from 7:15 to 8:30 a.m. and coffee from 8:30 to 10 a.m.; he will be in Glenwood Springs at Centennial Park from noon to 2 p.m. Meet him in person, and ask him challenging questions and share your biggest concerns.If you are content with the status quo, vote Salazar, Shaffer or Coors. If you are ready to address and implement some badly needed changes, vote Mike Miles for U.S. Senate on Aug. 10. Independents, you can make a difference by affiliating on the day you vote to get Mike Miles on the ballot for November.Annie FlynnCarbondale
