Letter: Heads in the sand

The recent comments by Patty Clapper and Bert Myrin of the Elected Officials Transportation Committee in the July 21 article (“Committee approves $494k for entrance study,” The Aspen Times) regarding light rail as one possible component of an approved study on the Entrance to Aspen illustrates their preconceived prejudice against a practical solution to Aspen’s congestion problem.

The upper valley has gone to gridlock hell! Our elected officials should be willing to assess all possible options that preserve our environment and quality of life. So get on the bus, Gus! And don’t you fuss, because Bert and Patty will not solve your problem, but light rail will.
