Recall would serve no purpose

Dear Editor:

C’mon. A recall on the mayor of Basalt? What a waste of the town’s and mayor’s time.

I want Jacque Whitsitt leading the town and not dealing with a recall instigated by a resident of Carbondale. If someone has issues with the way Jacque has been leading the town, bring it up with her and the rest of the Town Council and community. Let’s hear the problems.

I actually live in the town of Basalt and personally think Jacque is working her tail off for the people of Basalt, and I will work to make sure any recall effort is crushed. The town needs to move forward and work on real issues. Stop this effort before it embroils the town in a negative endeavor.
