As a lifelong Durango resident, I am pleased with the elimination of the proposed “bag tax.” During my formative years in Durango, such a ridiculous idea would not have become an issue. I realize that we have seen many changes through the years. However, should the opinions of the minority become a hardship and an extra expense for the majority?
The voters have spoken, and the sooner that the minority can accept this fact, the sooner that we can all move on. I, for one, am getting sick and tired of the new philosophy of our area that if at first you don’t succeed on certain issues, that they should try, try and try again until the few get what they want.
