Letter: Eagle council picks

Donna Spinelli
Eagle, CO Colorado

The town election on April 1 is a critical one to the future of Eagle. Please be sure to vote. Last year we had less than 200 votes to choose those who make the decisions on the town council. This year is an important mayoral election.

Ed Woodland, running for mayor of Eagle, has been actively involved in the town council as a member and as mayor pro-tem. He has demonstrated his philosophy of listening to the townspeople of Eagle and translating that philosophy into action. He is well-versed in the current issues for Eagle, and committed to finding solutions. He is very intelligent, and also very educated about the larger picture of national issues that affect us locally, such as the economy.

Kraige Kinney and Roxie Deane, running for town trustee, also have demonstrated histories of service on the town council.

Arn Menconi, on the other hand, does not even attend town council meetings, and is he is running for mayor. He does not care that there is an issue regarding serving as Eagle County Commissioner at the same time as serving as mayor of Eagle. It may be legal, but is it ethical? Will Arn recuse himself on conflicting issues? What do you think?

Please take the time to vote on April 1 in this important election for the Town of Eagle.
