The Manitou vote

The Nov. 4 election for Manitou Springs is important because of the 2G ballot issue prohibiting existing, legal, recreational marijuana sales. A strong voter turnout is necessary to fully represent the will of the people. It will also serve to continue our regional reputation as a functional city that cares and openly participates in our destiny with thoughtfulness for future generations as well as ourselves.

Full participation of all Manitou voters will also serve to support our local government as it endeavors to represent all of the people. This is no easy task.

I am proud that Manitou citizens and elected officials are not idealogues. We look to solve real problems, whether it involves flood mitigation, servicing tourists, dealing with slumlords, or finding the best way to regulate marijuana sales.
