Letter to the editor: Freedom and choice

Posted

The ongoing battle over single hauler trash collection is a good example of finding candidates who are for freedom and choice as opposed to those who want government in full control of our lives. As noted in aletterlast week we have councilmen who are in favor of putting the single hauler questions to the voters and those who want city council to vote for us. If you are for freedom, wouldn’t you want this to go to a public vote? Is it fair to charge those of us not using the city service a surcharge for road repair (where is the guarantee this is where the funds will go)? Do you want public officials who will give voters the choice?

Our hauler will pick up a couple of incidental items outside the container and we have been told Republic will not. Some of us may not want to give up the good service we are receiving from Crush, Waste Management and other companies. Some of us have good reasons for wanting single hauler and others to keep things as they are. Isn’t the fair way to resolve this by a public vote?

Shouldn’t we be looking at candidates in this manner for all offices?  Don’t let the Arvada City council take away your freedom to vote on this important manner. Contact them now!

William F Hineser,
Arvada
