Supporting Sandy Begley For Park Hospital District Board

To The Editor: Estes Park is a beautiful place and lucky too!

While the men may have good qualifications, I find it surprising that with four men and four women running for Town Trustee, the all-male Trail Gazette’s Editorial Board did not find even one woman qualified to be among the top three candidates for Town Trustee. Two women, Wendy Koenig a ...

Thoughts About The Candidates And Ballot Issues

To The Editor: Wendy Koenig has served us well over the last four years as an excellent Town Trustee. If she is willing to give us another four years of her service, we should be grateful. She is willing to openly confront tough issues that face our community, and we should be grateful. I will vote for Wendy Koenig for Town Trustee, and I hope you do the same. Paul Fishman is committed to the town, understa ...
