Letter: Basalt needs new blood

Basalt is gearing up for another election. I’m disappointed that the same people want to be in charge of our community forever! Easily, other people have the capability to serve our town. At one meeting, Rick Stevens said it best: Let the young people decide going forward, as it will be their community for a longer time. I have complete confidence that the new people running for office have been tested by the recession and their own life experiences to make good and sound decisions for our community. When you serve so long, I think you develop tunnel vision. I disagree with most of the actions taken by our present council members and truly feel they have served their time. Let’s see what a different approach to some of our problems will be. Good luck to Jacque and the new people running for office.
