Proud of open space

Dear Editor:Thank you for your kind words regarding our partnership with GOCO in protecting open space (Aspen Times Editorial, June 29). The protection of these lands is something our entire community should be proud of. Our success would not be possible without the diligent work of Barb D’Autrechy, our open space coordinator, who spends long hours assembling the detailed information required for these projects. Although she shies from the spotlight, she deserves credit equal to myself and the Open Space Board in making these things happen.Dale WillDirector, Pitkin County Open Space and Trails
