Letter: Sheriff endorses Ireland

On June 2, voters will fill the last remaining City Council seat. I will be supporting Mick Ireland. Say what you will about Mick, but he is clearly a dedicated public servant who, for unselfish reasons, gives his time to our community. I’ve known Mick for many years and consider him a friend. Mick has integrity of the highest level and speaks his mind honestly, which is refreshing as a politician.

I also know Mick to be a man who passionately believes in this community and represents all of us equally. Mick has devoted much of his life to serving Aspen and Pitkin County. Mick is truly a man of the people who lives a modest lifestyle in employee housing, works hard, gives back and makes decisions without special interests. Some may consider Mick abrasive and relentless; however, when there’s an issue that matters, isn’t that the person you want on your side?

Most importantly, remember to vote by mail or in person — it’s one of our most significant rights.

Joe DiSalvo
