Wallace has money, but Castrigno has drive

Ryan DarbyBreckenridge

County Commissioner Bill Wallace’s claim that opponent Tom Castrigno “hasn’t campaigned” (SDN, Oct. 26) could be a little optimistic on his part.In the short time I have been in Summit County, I have met Castrigno at many local events (chamber mixers, consumer trade show, etc.) and have come to know and respect him.I do not know Wallace or what he stands for, and a few thousand dollars worth of campaigning might get his name seen, but it sure does not give me anything to vote for. Maybe trying to get in touch with the people in Tom’s way is an idealistic way to run a campaign, but aren’t most of us here in Summit County a little idealistic? Isn’t that why we come to the mountains and live in safe communities that value education and embrace intelligent growth without sacrificing our environment? If readers have not had the opportunity to meet Castrigno, let me tell you a little bit about him. He has lived in Summit County for 17 years. He is passionate about Summit County and has been very active in the community for many years. His campaign highlights the environment, public transportation, affordable housing and good fiscal policies.
