Yes on 1A

Locations: Letters Published

Dear Editor:

Those of us who are fortunate enough to live in an area rich not only in beauty but in history with a variety of cultures (including Ute, Spanish explorers, miners, ranchers, settlers….) have an opportunity to vote on a November 7th ballot issue in Garfield County to recognize and protect our incredible history.

A YES on 1A will demonstrate a commitment to saving our historical societies throughout Garfield County and protecting our special places… places like the Thompson House in Carbondale, the ‘historic downtowns’ of our communities, the Railroad Museum in Glenwood Springs, and the unique and special sites between Parachute and Carbondale.  

Become informed….check out the 1A proposal on the November Ballot in Garfield County, Vote Yes on 1A,  and be part of the movement toward recognition and protection of our historic qualities and the responsible development of Heritage Tourism in Historic Garfield County.
