Voters reveal their reasons for casting ballots

On Tuesday people cast their votes in recall election aimed at 9th Judicial District Attorney Colleen Truden. Voters at the two polling places in Glenwood Springs – the community center and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church -were asked one question as they left the precincts: What brought you out to vote today? Here are their answers.• “I felt like Colleen Truden lost her effectiveness. There was so much dissension (that it) created an aura of dissension in the DA’s office. I think we need someone who can rally the forces. A lot of people under her left (the office). I doubted her ethics.”- Alice Gustafson• “I’m supporting the recall, and I wanted to make sure it happened.”- Jason Jaynes• “It’s really important (to vote). Everybody has a duty to vote.”- Mary Gould• “I feel the current DA is not representing Garfield County and the region. It’s time for a change, time to have someone responsible in office.”- Nancy Genova• “I believe the election had so much publicity due to the visibility and controversy. I wanted to have a voice. A lot has been said in the last six months. I hope this will end the controversy, and we’ll move on however it comes out. I wanted to be heard.”- Bob Wiley• “I wanted to exercise my right to vote. I’m curious to see the outcome.”- Rona Fisher
