Letter: Come to grips with reality

I believe I’m a lot like Aspen’s voting population. That is, without either the time or a burning desire to study the intricacies, or the meticulous changes needed, in Aspen’s land-use code. Nor do I have an inclination to learn all of the complexities inherent in all of the commercial development proposals that come before the city. I think that’s reality for most of us, but that’s OK; it’s not our calling.

It’s the job of representative government. It’s the job of our elected City Council. Vote “No” on Referendum 1 and prevent misguided campaigns and ad hoc elections. Vote for the candidates you trust to engage in thoughtful and reasonable debate at the City Council table.
