Let’s welcome community housing—integrated into the community

When the facts aren’t with you in an argument, you call people names. That’s what is happening with the debate on Bluebird. The mayor in his Feb. 3 guest opinion (“Let’s provide a warm Ketchum welcome to affordable housing”) suggested that those who oppose Bluebird are “prejudiced.” Let’s debate Bluebird on the facts, not with ad hominem attacks.

Bluebird is yet another development that, in my opinion, costs Ketchum far more than it brings. It is emblematic of a vision for Ketchum that will, in my opinion, bring us closer to what has happened in Vail. It will be another project that puts the “city” in the city of Ketchum.
