Christina Komeshian: Who wants a rodeo ‘experiment’ in their neighborhood?

Christina Komeshian

I wanted to point out that the pro-rodeo letters have not addressed the fact that this event is to take place in a residential neighborhood. We can argue all we want about animals rights, as people will be forever divided on that issue. But what about the fact that this noisy event is obviously going to disrupt full-time, year-round tax-paying Breckenridge residents who voiced their opinions that they are against it?

When the majority of responses were against the rodeo, the town campaigned with the BRC to get business owners to give feedback. The residential feedback was already loud and clear. Town council and Mayor John Warner have called this event “an experiment.”

Ask yourselves: Do you want your local government deciding what type of “experiments” get to take place in your neighborhoods? We have experienced government corruption at federal and state levels and people seem to be fed up. Please be very aware of local government situations where a few stand to make money at the expense of the quality of life of others. Remember that fighting injustice is also a large part of our great American heritage.
