Rappaport has the right vision for Basalt

Dear Editor:

I have been a professional artist working in this valley for more than 40 years. I have lived in the Basalt area since 1971. I have been instrumental in the creation or development of some of the valley’s most important arts organizations, including the Aspen Community School, the Aspen Art Museum, Anderson Ranch and the Wyly Community Art Center.

I know what dedicated and creative people can do to improve their community. Glenn Rappaport is such a dedicated member of the Basalt community, and I urge you to join me in giving Glenn your wholehearted support to elect him as Basalt’s next mayor.

I have known Glenn for more than 30 years, and his vision and commitment to our town has been constant and selfless.

As an architect, designer and artist, Glenn exhibits a level of visual literacy that is crucial for the future of Basalt at a time when we are experiencing big-time changes in our cultural and economic landscape in the midvalley.

His experience running his own business is a crucial positive for making the right decisions to guide us through the developing issues before us. Glenn is an honest, common-sense person and is always open to hearing and vetting both sides to an issue. That quality will serve us well as we move forward.

I have watched Glenn over many years become a loving husband, a great father, a loyal friend and a true community stalwart. He is everything Basalt could wish for in a position of leadership.

We face tumultuous times and difficult decisions in the midvalley, and we need a steady hand on the tiller. That would be Glenn.

I urge you to support and vote for Glenn Rappaport for mayor of Basalt.

Dick Carter
