Letter: What is fashionable?

As Fashion week infiltrates Aspen and Green is the New Black takes over Carbondale we should ask ourselves what is fashionable?

I personally find caring to be the most fashionable trait in a person. Caring about one’s self, caring about others, caring about the environment. There are very few things more fashionable than clean water, fresh air and fertile land.

One of the most fashionable actions is getting involved in the community. This could be volunteering in an organization, lending a helping hand to a neighbor or participating in an upcoming event, such as the Cornhole Tournament at the Carbondale Rec Center on April 12, where you will enhance the dynamics of the community by meeting new people as well as raise money for recreation scholarship programs.

I plan on getting involved in the community by asking relevant questions to people about issues, concerns and visions they have and seeing how we can help them as a town. I will do this by running for Carbondale Town Council. If elected to the Carbondale Board of Trustees my goal is to continue leading Carbondale in its path as a role model town for sustainability, lifestyle and culture in the 21st century.

By using the guiding principles of Health, Vitality, Prosperity, Community and Sustainability, I hope to be voice for all aspects of the people to include them in the legislative process. We are all different but I hope to see us unite on our common passion for living in this beautiful area and protecting and progressing in a way that is smart and logical for current and future generations.

Just remember the definition of fashionable is a current trend in culture. Let’s make sure things like caring for one another and the environment becomes more of a norm and less of trend. I look forward to meeting with people and doing what is in the best interest for the town on a local and global scale.

Kindest Regards,

Alexander (A.J.) Hobbs

Candidate for Carbondale trustee
