Red Feather Ridge representative an ace in the hole

Dear Editor,

During the Glenwood Springs City Council’s Thursday meeting to repeat the approval of the Red Feather Ridge annexation, I was struck by the realization of what a brilliant leader the banker from Oklahoma is.

He took one of his bank’s problem loans on the border of Glenwood Springs and solved the bank’s financial problem.

He also solved three pressing problems that the City Council has been unable to solve.

First, he solved the problem of obtaining a new cemetery, a problem that has plagued our mayor for two terms in office.

Second, he solved the problem of affordable housing, which this council and several in the past have been unable to solve.

Lastly, he solved the problem of getting the city off dead center in its efforts to improve the traffic conditions on Midland Avenue and Four Mile road.

All this progress in a few short months, with the added benefit of opening the whole Four Mile drainage to annexation and future development.

This fellow is too valuable for us to lose. We must hire him at whatever the cost. Think what could happen if we turned him loose on the Glenwood Meadows annexation and the rest of our presently unsolved community problems.
