In a former life, Mr. Romer must have been some sort of Cheerleader.
ECT supports efforts to create new private sector jobs in Eagle County, particularly in the down valley (Eagle-Gypsum) communities since those families are the folks that continue to suffer most from Home Foreclosures.
The ECT takes issue with Mr. Romer’s claim about our Gypsum Airport (EGE) that “the addition of an international terminal will benefit the ‘entire community’ in a positive way…”
The ECT believes that we’ve determined Mr. Romer doesn’t own a home at the end of our Airport’s Runway in Gypsum.
Like all reasonable people the ECT would like to see the costs/trade offs/environmental impacts..etc) reviewed publically with and for the folks in Gypsum closest to our Regional Airport. Everyone knows (except Mr. Romer?) that increasing traffic and noise at an Airport has impacts. Even our ‘Junior Fishwrap’ – a.k.a. the Eagle Valley Enterprise has picked up on this fact.

Mr. Romer, let’s make sure we “get this one right” and make sure the folks impacted the most are heard from publically. They’re our neighbors and friends, not our Community’s doormat for economic development. Again, the ECT supports creating new private sector jobs, let’s just make sure we do this with our ‘eyes wide open’ and not ‘eyes wide shut’ which the ECT is concerned…may be Mr. Romer’s current view. Disappointing that Mr. Romer’s recent comments printed in the Fishwrap did not once mention any impacts on our fellow citizens. (Click Here) to see for yourself.
The ECT is anxious to ‘play on the same team’ Mr. Romer – let’s get this one right so we can all win and not just at the expense of someone else.
