Basalt mayor should stop pointing fingers

Well kudos to the grassroots effort post wildfire ignition. Basalt Mayor Jacque Whitsitt be careful what you say because it just might bite you back. It’s like Hilary Clinton who called those who didn’t want her as president deplorables that motivated many to vote for anyone but her — as is the case of the mayor’s backhanded comment about her contituents. Trust me the shooting range’s future will be first and then her future will be next. Wow, and to think with a little precaution we could have avoided this fire. Yeah, I know a cigarette could have started the fire, but guess what it didn’t. I love how folks live to interject unicorn theories but facts never seemed to get noticed.
