Politics and Whitewater in Avon, CO
WARNING: Post contains political viewpoints. Read at your own risk.
So I've heard that the new whitewater park has become a talking point in the upcoming Town of Avon elections.
Sounds like some of the candidates are using the construction of the park as an attack point against some of the other candidates saying that the park was a waste of money but not giving any examples of what else it could have been used for. Please note this is all hersay to take it for what it's worth.
Being a boater, I am biased towards the park but not just for ample play. I think it will be a great place for people to hang out on the river during the summer and enjoy the river. Much of our riverfront is private property and this will give everyone a place to chill, not to mention they get to watch us. Seeing what happens in Salida at the park there with the families and kids is a great thing and I think it will be a great addition to Avon.
Ron Wolfe and Brian Sipes were instrumental in bringing this park to us so if you are a registered voter in Avon or know registered voters in Avon, please have them support the people who brought us what might be the best addition to Avon in a long time.
