The fight isn’t over

Dear Editor:Congratulations are in order for newly elected Mayor “Mic” Ireland and City Council members Duane Romero and Stevie Skadron. As Mick Ireland so succinctly said, this past election seemed to go on forever and forever and forever. I felt like it was an eternity. For all those brave enough to enter the race, my congratulations go out to you also for having the courage to stand up for what you believe in to try to make a difference. As for me, I cannot believe I made it through the slugfest. For all those who choose to try to tear me apart, I have good news for you. The fight for my goals are not over with. In fact, the first item on the new council’s agenda is none other than the improvements to the recycle center in Rio Grande Park and the expansion of the skateboard park. If you can, please come and voice your opinion. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. for the old council, and the new council will probably begin around 6. If you can’t be there, you can have faith in my character, and, you trust, that as always, I will be there to lobby for a community good. Many thanks to outgoing Mayor Klanderud who provided me with the school-of-hard-knocks education, council members Torre and Jasmine Teague. All of you will be greatly missed.Toni KronbergAspen
