Town Council picks

Dear Editor:

Basalt elections are coming up and I’m voting for Jim Paussa, Karin Teague, and Anne Freedman.

I think they’ll best continue Basalt’s current emphasis on development and infill over growth, pursuit of affordable housing options, and community vibrancy. I’m not too worried about Anne jacking up our taxes – she’s not running for high office, just Town Council. But I am worried about candidates who supported the Willits expansion of over 120,000 square feet, at a time when we had huge growth already approved but not built.
