How does Sonja Macys’ ideas of applying Climate Action Plan driven policies to the Routt County Master Plan deliver affordable housing and regional transportation?
Everyone knows the Climate Action Plan (although approved by the Steamboat City Council which Kathi and Sonja were both members) has no
fiscal cost associated with it. In other words, it prescribes a lot of boiler-plate climate fluff that makes people feel good about the possibilities of affecting the direction of the climate without consideration for the impact on the economy and our way of life.
What Routt County needs is a balanced approach in policies that will deliver solutions that realistically and responsibly balance our environmental and economic needs. We don’t need unrealistic promises that will never be delivered and will cost our low and middle income families the ability to afford living in Routt County. As a city council member, Sonja Macys has a long history of making promises she could
never keep, and she never met a tax increase she couldn’t support. Sonja Macys’ will continue the same approach while expecting different results.
As a Republican, Kathi Meyer will represent the other half of Routt County besides those of the Steamboat Springs liberal elite. She will bring “all-the-above” solutions and balance to restore economic opportunity and prosperity to Routt County’s small businesses and citizens.
