Vicki Cook: Protect property rights with a ‘yes’ vote in Silverthorne

Vicki Cook

The way the amendment is Silverthorne is written, voters can support both the completion of the recpath and still vote “yes” on the eminent domain amendment.

If the court agrees to give Silverthorne the right to finish the path, they can. In the future, however, property rights will be more protected. It Silverthorne wants to use eminent domain for non-essentials projects, they will have to take it to the citizens. A “yes” vote does not affect the path, but will protect the property owners rights. That is all we really want to do is to protect our rights as owners of any property that we pay taxes on. I urge you to vote “yes.”
