Thank you, Helen

(This letter was originally addressed to Mayor Helen Klanderud.)Dear Editor:Thank for your many years of dedicated public service to the people of Aspen and Pitkin County, and in particular for your eight years as mayor. While I may not have always agreed with your positions and policies, I was always impressed with your responsiveness and willingness to give any issue fair and thoughtful consideration. Day-to-day city management issues that could be quickly addressed always were under your leadership. In a community too often plagued by passionately held, but wildly divergent positions, you have gotten things done, and Aspen is a better place thanks to your leadership. You have diligently served our community with passion, sound judgment, dignity and honor appropriate to this very special place.Thank you for your extraordinary service to our community.Mike MapleAspen
