Gary Cole: What good came out of article on developer?

This letter is in response to the article about the owner of Alpine Apartments, Mauritis de Blank.

Why anything good would be published in a community newspaper about a man that makes no pretense about wanting to make the community better or to be involved in the community.

He just wants to make money and get out.

I am a Yampa Valley native, born in Steamboat Springs.

I have seen what people of this stripe do to communities.

I have no problem with people who want to make money. However, you can’t just take.

I am not disappointed in Mr. de Blank, I am disappointed in the fact the Chamber of Commerce, a community advocate, would have anything nice to say about this person, and I am disappointed that the paper would print anything about him.

His type make it very difficult to be a local.

Gary Cole
