Letter to the editor: Elected officials should represent the people

Hal Vatcher
Breckenridge

I am really troubled by the Breckenridge Town Council (and other elected officials) publishing their support for various ballot issues. I thought that when we elected town council members they were supposed to represent the people of the town. Without having taken a vote of the town people, they have no right, as our representatives, to imply that we, the individual voters, support (or not) the ballot initiatives. Please do not overreach your authority or power!  If you want to vote for any initiatives, please do so as individuals.  Thank you.
