Letter: Elinski will put the Verde River first


Having lived in Cottonwood for more than 20 years I have come to appreciate the aesthetic, recreational, and economic value of the Verde River.  

Hiking the trails, camping, or watching the river flow at Dead Horse Ranch State Park are special activities that we enjoy in our community’s back yard. Verde River Day and the Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival are just two events among many that bring tourists to our area. The entire Verde Valley is a treasure for locals and visitors alike.

That is why I’m supporting Tim Elinski for Cottonwood City Council. He has demonstrated a deep concern for the Verde River watershed and its inhabitants. We need a councilman that is willing to stand up and speak out for the River and the surrounding landscape, and Tim Elinski will do just that.

be sure to review mr. smiths voting record... he is not a new comer... he has served before so be sure what he says now matches his record.

Voting for someone based on only one issue is not the way to go. Read all the questions the Verde Independent has asked the candidates and base your choice on their answers to several, not just one. Friday, Jan 25 and Sunday, Feb.3 papers had lots of questions .And when the League of Women Voters had their forum, see who showed up and who didn't.
I would chose Darold Smith for his ideas on land use, city planning, water resources, attracting businesses, and no new taxes on citizens without citizens' input. Now that's an agenda!

walk the walk,
do you have an example of something mr. elinski has "rubber stamped" which has harmed the river or is this just more baseless rhetoric to demean someone serving the public. facts speak the loudest but I guess you do not comprehend the truth.

Saying you support the river and actually doing something to accomplish that are two entirely different things.

If he continues to rubber stamp whatever staff wants that will harm rather than help the river.

Actions always speak louder than words.
