Letter: County officials need Econ 101

George Middlemas
Avon, CO Colorado

Mr. Runyon’s comments would be taken seriously if the Eagle County Commissioners were not wasting money on uneconomical Prius purchases and countervailing the express will of their constituents by funding continuing obligations that the county cannot afford.

A course in basic economics should be required of all elected officials with budgetary responsibility. Those of us who own “second homes” and pay 62 percent of the taxes should consider registering to vote here in Eagle and help to throw Mr. Menconi and his ilk out of office. Killing the goose that lays the golden egg will not solve any problems in Eagle County. The base problem here is a limited budget conflicting with unlimited desires.
