Think before you vote

The Aspen Skiing Co. certainly did not hesitate in its endorsement of the incumbents in the upcoming city election. Why the challengers haven’t even, for the most part, publicized their platforms yet.

The mighty Skico publicity machine, though, is at work with phone banks from one of their subsidiary companies and mass mailings to employees. The Skico thinks the present group has done a good job – I guess they’ve only been at meetings where they wanted something.

Of course considering so many of the things they’ve done in the past, their endorsement is not necessarily an asset to the incumbents.

I encourage everyone to take their time. Think not only about what the present council has done, but also how they’ve done it. Clearly re-electing this council means more of the same, from cozy dealings and disregard of voters’ wishes, to mishandling of municipal assets – things that belong to you and I.
