Vail Daily letter: ‘Yes’ vote will save money

It seems all we hear about is the Skier Building purchase. The plain and simple truth is that the building will be purchased. The issue is how much it will cost. If we vote “yes,” it will be less expensive. If we vote “no,” it will still be purchased but it will cost more. Logically we should try to save money. The vote is not a “yea” or “nay” for the purchase. Those advocating we vote “no” understand this, I hope. Their motives are confused and unclear as they espouse saving the taxpayers money, yet by voting “no” it will cost the taxpayer more.

The wise choice is voting “yes” on this measure and thus less taxpayer monies will be expended on this purchase. The naysayers must find a more compelling argument based on sound fiscal principles or they risk losing credibility on future opinions.
