Letter: Odd omission in Basalt mayoral article

The article titled “Basalt mayor hopefuls — see how they run” (The Aspen Times, Feb. 15) about Basalt mayoral candidates Rick Stevens and Jacque Whitsitt was interesting. It listed many of Stevens’ involvements. One omission was odd. The article did not mention that he is president of Aspen Earthmoving. Understanding candidates’ connections, titles, professions and so on would be a great service to the readers when moving forward to cover all the candidates, as it helps to give insight as to which way they will vote. I hope you will make a point of providing such relevant information in future articles that cover council candidates. Thank you.
