Short-termers shouldn’t vote

Dear Editor:(This letter was originally addressed to Aspen Skiing Co. seasonal employees.)On Thursday, Snowmass Village will hold an election on the approval of Base Village, which, if passed, will change the heart and soul of our community. This highly charged and divided issue has far-reaching implications for those of us who live, work, and play here. You may have been asked and encouraged by your employer, the Aspen Skiing Co., to vote yes for their project. Please understand that your votes may well influence the outcome of this election and change the lives and faces of this town forever. If you have no long-term interests in this community, or if you are not tied emotionally to the outcome of the vote, please do not vote in favor of this Base ViIIage. Let those of us that must live each and every day with the impacts of this ill-conceived project decide our own fate.Brian SledgeSnowmass Village
