Vote for both Tonys

Susan O’Neal, in her letter to the editor yesterday, claims that Councilman Tony Hershey is two different people. This is odd, considering that from what I have read from her letters, Ms. O’Neal could be at least eight people!

She asks the city, with Councilman Hershey’s help, to realign the intersection at Durant and Aspen streets, which they may do for her, because she just moved here and hates the noise of buses braking at the stop sign there. Susan, there were buses stopping there when you bought the place.

She campaigns for the trolleys, and when they lose refuses to accept the will of the people, and tries to buy them to bully us into another election on an issue she clearly lost.

She then writes in another letter that we should all try to get along and be nice to each other – interesting considering her latest attack on Tony Hershey.

Who knows, Tony Hershey may be two people, but I have found him to be logical, fair and clear on all the issues before him. The “real Tony Hershey” has stood up; he has consistently stood up for the people as a voice of reason on the Aspen City Council.

If Tony Hershey is indeed two different people, I am voting for him twice on May 6.
