Letter: Bert has the cure

Recently on Aspen Public Radio, Carolyn Sackariason moderated a discussion between the City Council runoff candidates Bert Myrin and Mick Ireland.

We have seen Dr. Ireland’s “cures” many times before. The Aspen Art Museum cure, the Lift 1 cure, the hydroplant cure. Ignoring signs and symptoms of “parking gate” and huge cost overruns on numerous city projects, it’s time for a second opinion. Please vote for Bert.
