Letter: Jacobson deserves second chance

Snowmass Town Councilman Chris Jacobson has made a mistake under the influence of alcohol. The justice system will deal with that. But this rush to remove him from his elected office is so obviously politically motivated, it doesn’t even pass the smell test.

Jacobson is a whistleblower who brought to light illegal activities by two council members last fall. If the court declares him guilty in such a way that he must be removed, then so be it. He has been a longtime resident and has contributed a great deal to Snowmass Village. He should be forgiven.
