Young has proven worth

Dear Editor:

I am writing to voice my support for John Young as a Pitkin County commissioner.

He has been a friend, a neighbor and a fellow member of the Basalt and Rural Fire and Rescue Department board of directors for many years. In his capacity as a fire board member, he provided the leadership in creating four affordable housing units attached to the Basalt fire station. All these units are occupied by volunteer members who now have immediate access to our ambulance and rescue equipment reducing our response times dramatically.

This on-time, on-budget project will pay dividends to our residents for many years to come. The community has John to thank for his major role in their creation. Please consider voting for John Young in the primary election. He will make a great addition to the existing board.

Bob Guion
