Letter: A recall vote is the right course

I am writing you to encourage you to participate in the current recall election of Snowmass Councilman Chris Jacobson. It is important that we have representation that devotes the time to attend meetings, provide constructive input and work in a constructive and congenial manner. I will vote to recall Chris not because of his legal problems but because I think he is a bad council person. His lack of participation during the recent Base Village review has convinced me this is the right course of action.

I am pleased that Tom Goode is willing to serve our community. I have known Tom for more than 20 years and have the highest regard for his integrity and abilities to make a great member of the the Town Council.

His performance on the planning commission has proven his capabilities and dedication to our community. Please join me in voting for Tom for Town Council and for a functional and dedicated Town Council.
