Letter: Lesser of the evils?

Dear Editor:

The best and the brightest? I can vote, but I’m stumped by the two mayoral candidates and all the bickering, even as neither has won the office yet.

Wow. I can hardly wait. Let’s get rid of the “opposition” so we get some margarine lefties who can’t walk and chew gum at the same time. And let’s get an ex-mayor championing one over the other. Go, team!

If this is Aspen’s best and brightest, orchestrated by a man whose greatest contribution to local politics is by not running again, then in all likelihood I should stand down and let nature take her course. But maybe not. Perhaps I should waste my vote on the least harmful candidate. Politics. You can’t live with it, and you can’t live without it.
