Now in Mick’s corner

We must endorse Mick Ireland for an additional term as Pitkin County Commissioner.

The roundabout was the right move – works well and we were reimbursed, as Mick predicted. The Highway 82 improvements and employee housing are excellent.

Probably Mick’s contributions to county planning and zoning have been his most outstanding and lasting effort. (One must include his fellow commissioners and Cindy Houben and her staff in this effort.)

TDR’s have been a most successful concept. One has only to look at other jurisdictions nearby to see the lack of good environmental practices.

I owe Mick serious apologies for my opposition over the years. I still reserve the right to be critical, but hopefully in a more constructive way than in the past.
