Letters: You get the government you deserve

That’s the spirit

To the Town of Eagle, its political body, town employees, its business people and volunteers:

Let me take this opportunity to praise you all for your Christmas and happy holiday decorations which are featured at the east and west end of your community as well as in your downtown area. Your decorations have a nice feeling of warmth, hospitality and a Rockwellian sense of a small town with holiday spirit. Keep up the good work.

I happened to be in your community yesterday and took note.

Perhaps Edwards, its business sector, especially Riverwalk, will be encouraged to follow your holiday zeal and business savvy.

County logo’s a waste

The adage that people get the government they deserve is proven again. The latest proof is Eagle County hiring a logo consultant for $36,000. These same commissioners spent money for a second vote on “home rule” shortly after it was voted down and went against the people’s vote on taxpayer-funded day care, commonly called preschool programs, and now are now writing articles about how they need more of our money through increased property taxes.

Amazingly, I haven’t been in one conversation where people said changing the logo was a high priority.

When you get your tax bill this year remember who you elected. Their logo has three commissioners sitting on a big pile of taxpayer’s money.

Vail police helped

The Vail Valley Salvation Army would like to thank Moses Gonzales and the Vail Police Department with all of his efforts for the Make a Difference Day event this past October. Without this valuable contribution to our organization we would not be able to help those in need of food for both the holidays and throughout the year.

We would also like to thank those who donated food to Make a Difference Day. These contributions will make a huge difference in many families lives throughout the valley.
