In response to Karen Wilson’s letter to the editor, I was encouraged to write one of my own.
Dear Rep. Amerson,
I am writing to ask for your support by denying a regional airport (or airport of any design) in Dawson County.
The residents of this county enjoy beautiful rivers, creeks and wooded areas. We enjoy the peaceful recreation that is available in Dawson County and would delight in more parks and recreational space.
As a fairly new resident, I appreciate the small-town atmosphere and the genuineness of the people here. If I wanted to be near an airport, race track, or ski resort, I would have moved near one.
Thank you for your support in keeping Dawson unique and tranquil.
