Applause for Bershenyi

I must say that I was both saddened and angered when I saw the headline of the paper on Saturday saying that Stephen Bershenyi should quit his City Council position because of a “kerfuffle.” Correct me if I am wrong, but we elect officials to speak their mind, be open to new ideas and above all, act in the best interest of their constituents. The idea of forming a secret alliance with other council members is not only appalling, but should be brought to the attention of the electorate.

I applaud Stephen for speaking his mind, putting his foot down and refusing to participate in the sham that choosing a new city manager has become. Glenwood Springs is embarking upon a major project, the building of a new bridge. Stephen Bershenyi is a champion of Glenwood. We need his fresh ideas and creativity as we come closer to this project that will change and shape Glenwood’s future.

As trite as it may sound, I think the first bridge that should be built is in our council. You can have your disagreements, but as a voting citizen of Glenwood Springs, I expect more. Iron this out. Stephen, don’t go!
