Vail opens this Friday (22NOV) for this years Ski season. Beaver Creek opens the following Wednesday.
This year more than at any other time – the ECT concerns are centered on Public Safety both on and off our Ski slopes.
FACTOID: Governments #1 job is Public Safety. Not Education folks, Public Safety. All the things reasonable people want for their Community are based on Public Safety, FIRST! Our Streets, Schools, Restaurants and Shops, Ski Slopes all must be made Safe (first) for ourselves and Resort guests.
So? So then why are so many of Eagle County’s elected individuals spending so much time…passing zoning and local regulations that only serve to reduce Public Safety by allowing mind altering Drugs to be sold (then obviously used) in our Community?
From above – Eagle County District Attorney Bruce Brown: “If you walk into any Courthouse any day of the week, you will see numerous people facing charges of drinking and drugging while driving”.
How does the availability of more Drugs in our Community, improve Public Safety?
The ECT’s heightened concern this year is because higher Drug availability means greater Drug use and less Public Safety. More defensive driving and a Helmet when Skiing/Snowboarding are two good ways to help protect you and your family – now that our elected leadership has shown little concern for our Public Safety by allowing more of these Drugs (hence more Drug abuse) into our Community.
