Whitsitt for mayor

Dear Editor:

Jacque Whitsitt would be an outstanding mayor for the town of Basalt. I have known her for a couple of decades or more, and she always has had a very thoughtful, reasoned perspective on local issues, and she would be an unbiased voice for the hardworking people who make up our community. She is not a consultant for development, but she does have an educational background in land-use planning. She has a broad range of experience in the public sector, outside of the town, having served in leadership roles with entities such as the Colorado Association of Ski Towns, the Midvalley Trails Group, the Colorado Mountain College Board and the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority. She always has been an advocate for public education. She understands the role of serving as a representative for her community. She is very approachable, easy to talk to and a good collaborator. She would make an excellent mayor.
