    Thoughts on the election

    Editor:

    We are writing on Wednesday, Nov. 9. We are very happy. The candidate we supported for almost two years is now president-elect. We are part of the “common folk.” We knew people wanted a better economy, more opportunities, not more elitism, not more racism or gender bias.

    Vote for Pete Weir, a DA with integrity, compassion

    Editor:

    It is both my privilege and honor to support Pete Weir for re-election as Jeffco’s district attorney. I first met Pete in the darkest days following Jessica Ridgeway’s kidnapping and homicide, and I witnessed first hand Pete’s leadership and compassion, as well as his unwavering resolve in the pursuit of justice for Jessica.

    El Rancho development not needed

    Editor:

    It was with much sadness that I read the report on the proposed massive developments at El Rancho. The comment from the chamber of commerce spokesperson was probably not meant to be sarcastic, but “this is just what Evergreen needs …” seemed much more accurate and valid when heard as such.

    Then again, the Courier included only cheerleading statements and supporters in the article without bothering to get local community sentiment.

    Rosier, Szabo show little regard for voters’ wishes on library

    Editor:

    Ramsey Scott’s article about the special hearing regarding the library’s 2016 budget was genuinely upsetting.

    I am a former member of the library Board of Trustees; I worked day and night for the passage of 1A, the 1-mill property-tax increase for the libraries. The citizens spoke: They are willing to pay for better library service.
