Letter: Stick with incumbents in Basalt fire election

As a Basalt resident for many years, I have seen the Basalt and Rural Fire Protection District evolve from a single-station organization with one full-time, paid employee to a highly professional, state-of-the-art fire department.

The changes have been pretty substantial over the past 15 years or so, which in turn have enabled the district to become one of the premiere fire departments in the state. This is due, in part, to the efforts of the incumbent district board members with their forethought and vision guiding the department through these tough economic times.

I urge everyone to vote for the incumbents, Robert Woods, Ed VanWalraven, John Young and Leroy Duroux.
