Letter: Hooray for Patti

Patti Clapper epitomizes the reason why I live in Aspen. She cares about her community and the people in it.

I had a ridiculous dilemma with the state of Colorado that had lasted way too long. I was frustrated and at my wits end. I didn’t know where to turn. I have known Clapper for 30 years, so I called her.

Let me state that she was not in office at the time and she still took time out of her demanding schedule to help me. That is dedication to her constituents — whether in office or not. She guided me through the most difficult and trying time for me.

That’s why I urge you to vote for Clapper for county commissioner, she truly cares about all of us who reside in Pitkin County.

My problems have almost been resolved. I also would like to thank Rachel Richards for her advice and Mick Ireland for his hard work and dedication to resolve my situation.
