Letter to the editor: Set city progress back 20 years

Set city progress back 20 years

Received Nov. 16

We need a mayor who is willing to move the city forward, even if it means an increase in taxes to achieve progress. We cannot stay stagnant and vote “no” on every issue that would result in moving the city forward.

The latest example is Barbara Ehardt’s “no” vote to approve the Jackson Hole Junction development. Electing Ehardt as mayor will set the city progress back 20 years.
