Unstoppable change

Dear Editor:

I have decided to vote yes for the Art Museum. I decided a long time ago, but kept seeing all the negative letters and ads and wondered if I was missing something. I have determined I wasn’t. What do the opponents want the old Youth Center for? More government offices?

I believe that there is no stopping change ” the question for me is does the proposed change make Aspen better or worse? Obviously, that is in the eye of the beholder, but I think a new, great art museum in the downtown core on a grossly underutilized site is a good idea. Fighting to keep Aspen “the same” is a losing battle. Look in the mirror, are you the same as 20 years ago? Fighting to make Aspen better is what interests me, and in my analysis this makes us better.
