Tighten those belts

Dear Editor:

Amen to Charlie Leonard’s column “We can’t tax our way out” (Oct. 20, 2011, The Aspen Times).

Open Space and Trails has too much money to spend in these tough times. Can’t we just tighten our belts and reduce budgets? I challenge our public officials to reduce spending and cut budgets! I do support 1A.
