Vail Daily letter: Am I hearing right?

Vail Daily
Vail, CO Colorado

This is what I heard listening to the comments at last Thursday’s meeting in Edwards about the Hidden Gems wilderness proposal:

The proponents want to give Congress power to add borders around public land (wilderness) to keep out the public (taxpayers), especially the elderly and physically challenged (since they had no representation or an advocate during this whole process).

This is the same Congress that cannot keep out drug smugglers, human traffickers, terrorists and illegals from getting across our current southern borders while having the full force and might of the federal government available to them.

This is the administration that wants to close all national parks because we (our country) are broke!

I think what is desperately needed is all new leadership in government at all levels.
