Letter, Opinion

Mountain vs. seniors, part two

Dear Editor,

The response from people I received after my letter was published in last week’s edition, was overwhelmingly positive everywhere I went—skiing Thursday and Friday, at Choices Friday night, the Deli on Route 4, everywhere—not one negative remark. But this is not just one man’s battle. We all need to make our voices heard.
Just like we did when the Mountain asked for volunteers to help them with the World Cup. Did our residents respond, you ask? They needed about 250 people. Not only did they get that, but they had to turn away over a hundred of us. That’s nearly half of the adult population of Killington. The World Cup was a great thing for our town and for the Mountain. Both the Town and the Mountain will be lobbying again to have the cup return to Killington. And we the residents will be there again to support our town and our Mountain. I can beat this drum all day long, but I can’t do it alone. We the residents are not asking for too much. We deserve something back from the Mountain. After all when they called on us, we were there for them, and always will be. Well, Mr. Mountain, let us hear from you.

Richard Kropp, Killington
