Proud of town

Dear Editor:

I want to thank The SUN, and many of our residents for helping discuss and debate the issue of the proposal for a bond issue to support a new Recreation Center for the Town. It has not been easy for the proposal is complex and aspects of it needed highly skilled analysis to understand. I am adamant on my previously stated opposition to it on many grounds, both financial and ethical. It is untimely and an unfair imposition on county residents who cannot vote on it, and the burden it would place on the Town for the near future is totally uncalled for.

But I do want to thank The SUN, the Mayor Ross Aragon, the County Commissioners and a number of other local residents who have given without reservation of their time, their focus and their energy to help decode this issue and to help us understand why it is not the right decision at this time. It is a decent idea whose time will come I hope. Thank you to all, and above all, I am glad to see that calm and reasonable decisions have been made concerning the debate both in the press and in public, and that restraint and tolerance has been given to both sides as far as could be allowed.

I am proud of our town and our Press and our Town and County officials. You have done well.

Chris Gerlach
