Throw the bums out!

Dear Editor:

It’s time that we get a mayor and council who understand that the people in deed-restricted housing and those in free market housing must be symbiotic and work together. We ARE a resort community (for better or worse) and we all need each other. The incumbents have carelessly spent all the housing money so there is nothing left in the coffers for additional building or even maintaining what exists. For those people who have forgotten, all that money comes from sales of real estate in the city of Aspen. Obviously, with the sliding economy, those numbers are way down and it will take years to replace what this fiscally irresponsible mayor has spent.

It really is time to vote for candidates who understand bringing together all sides and incorporating the tremendous brainpower and expertise many of our citizens would gladly offer.

Save our town, our jobs, our culture.

Vote for Marilyn Marks.
