Letter: A political power grab

A political power grab

Basaltines,

Do we really need career politicians in Basalt?

The question on the April 1 ballot seeks to extend the term limits from eight years to a possible 16 years for a combined council and mayor term. This is an unfortunate and embarrassing power grab by the mayor to do an end run around the existing rules.

Basalt needs fresh blood to solve its problems … not a continuation of those who got us to this point in the first place.

What happened to small-town character?  Please, just vote “no.”

Dick Carter
