Reject the land swap
Editor’s note: The following letter was originally sent to the Bureau of Land Management.
I am writing to voice my extreme opposition to the Wexner family private acquisition of our public land! I expect BLM to take the moral highroad and deny this exploitation of public trust for private gain!
I view Mount Sopris from my ranch on Missouri Heights. I will be forever enraged if this public treasure is blocked from access by the rich, powerful, arrogant Wexner family!
How outrageous the Wexners are to say that they will seek congressional influence to accomplish their insane quest to privatize our public land!
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
