What Aspen needs

Dear Editor:Andy Stone’s editorial, “Toni’s Aspen has no limits” and Chris Cassatt’s cartoon, “Dad? Did Aspen lose its soul?” in the May 24th Aspen Times were both insightful and accurate.Over the years Toni Kronberg has probably attended more City Council meetings and work sessions than all the other candidates combined (from wherever she is residing and often using mass transit). Her commitment to and passion for Aspen is daunting. Her point of view may not be currently in vogue with the powerful, but she is not afraid to question or make comments. There is no doubt she can be controversial and very frustrating. Having witnessed her treatment at council meetings, I am amazed by Toni’s ability to pick herself up, dust herself off and continue forging ahead.Unlike some folks in important positions, she does not try to suppress opposing ideas, she is not sarcastic or rude; she does not spit during tirades or call others names. She is an idealist, true to her vision for Aspen, tireless and cannot be bought.Is she perfect? Not by any means, but as my dad suggested the other day; maybe Toni is Aspen’s current Freddy Fisher, only a lot better looking!Personally, I wish we had more of her kind around here.
