Viva Bill Kane!

Dear Editor:

The town of Basalt is extremely fortunate to have Bill Kane as candidate for city manager. A man of broad experience, with significance public and private successes, Bill Kane has the enthusiastic endorsement of many Basalt citizens.

Basalt is at a unique juncture, characterized by unresolved opportunity, growth and land-use issues, static vitality, etc. ” all overshadowed by the current state of our economy. These are not “business as usual” circumstances for the average, even competent administrator. The job requires a unique set of qualifications and vision that match these circumstances ” capabilities that clearly describe Bill Kane.

Bill’s perspective and capabilities, not only deriving from combined public and private experience, include large-scale budget and staff management, a special ability to empower fellow workers, a background of planning and zoning authorship, and a proven ability to listen, assimilate and structure closure to civic issues.

Bill is one of us; he has lived and worked in the Roaring Fork Valley for over 25 years, understands valley-wide dynamics, and is powered by a tireless work ethic that will bring the right skill set at the right time to Basalt. Along with many others I urge the Basalt Town Council to select Bill to help steer our future.
