Letter: The next generation steps up

There is something amazing going on in Carbondale. The next generation is getting involved in government, on nonprofit boards and in business.

This fresh energy brings creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and hope. That is why I am voting for the platform of Katrina Byars, Frosty Merriott and Alexander Hobbs for Carbondale town trustees.

Frosty is entering his second term, so he brings knowledge and experience to government. Katrina and Alexander both grew up in the valley. They understand the spirit of volunteerism, the importance of keeping our environment and watershed clean and the strength of community.

They believe in listening and learning. They yearn for a gentler, kinder way of government based in working together to reach consensus. They care about our seniors and social equality for all. Issues like affordable housing, Thompson Divide and strengthening local business will get focus.

Katrina’s campaign slogan is “Grassroots Transformation.” Voting for Katrina Byars, Frosty Merriott and Alexander Hobbs for Carbondale Town Trustee is the first step towards achieving this.
