Letter: Minturn’s just being ‘selfish’
Vail CO, Colorado
I am so happy that Minturn gets to vote on overturning the Battle Mountain project. I wish I lived there so I could vote against it.
Minturn has been completely selfish is this project. They never thought about the rest of the county! All they ever talked about was their traffic problems and their wildlife issues and their water rights issues. Don’t they realize that other towns have problems, too?
For that reason, Minturn needs to overturn this until they realize that they need to give the other towns in the county some money too. For instance, I think they need to give Avon a couple of million so we can address our transit problems. I have not lived here long but I am positive that Avon would look out for Minturn if the shoe was on the other foot.
Vote against Battle Mountain! That money belongs to all of us, not just Minturn!
