Stick to the facts, not attacks

It’s too bad that my opposition to Aspen’s wilderness dams subjected me to attacks on Facebook, etc., and most recently comparisons to Donald Trump, no less. This is a valid and important public policy issue, which every candidate should answer without resort to personal attacks against the person who brought it up (me, along with many others).

It’s really simple, and something every public official or anyone running for office should be able to answer: Are you for or against wilderness area dams, and if you’re an incumbent, have you done anything in your four years in office to make sure these dams won’t happen? Aspen has plenty of ways to protect in stream flows without pursuing dams.
