Why we quit Breckenridge vacations (letter)
June 21, 2015
After watching "High Profits" on CNN, my wife an I have decided we will not be going to Breckenridge for any of our future vacations The idea that some people have that marijuana on Main Street is going to harm the brand of Breckenridge are wrong.
What made me decide not to vacation in what looks like a wonderful mountain town is the people who live there and their anti-business attitudes, not marijuana. Ignorant people are what tarnished the Breckenridge brand for us. We can't spend our money in a place that stifles business at the sake of peoples' perceptions and what if's.
Its such an easy idea to grasp: If a business isn't wanted or needed, the business will lack customers and, in turn, lack income, which will make them go out of business. It boggles my mind how certain business owners in Breckenridge can — with a straight face — admit and vote for another business not to be allowed on Main Street because they don't agree with the business.
As far as BCC goes, I commend them for the honest and testicular fortitude to allow the cameras into their business and personal lives. To the well-to-do folks who voted "No": remember me and others who are saying no thanks to Breckenridge because of the anti-American spirit that your town reflected on the show.
I'm truly disgusted by some of the people in your town. I wish the outcome had been different for your town, but you wish in one hand and … you know the rest.
