Ed Murray, La Plata County treasurer, can confirm the many current foreclosures. Look at the empty store fronts downtown.
Our city is made up of many neighborhoods, and each neighborhood is made up of residents trying to feed their families, pay for and maintain their homes and businesses and generally trying to survive these bad times.
These residents and neighbors deserve to have new City Council members who want a healthy business climate that will help these neighbors keep their homes and jobs. Emil Wanatka and Connie Imig have and will continue to nurture this climate of progress for all residents of Durango in a civil manner.
