Kremmling family suffers because town let franchise in

To the Editor:

We would like to thank the town of Kremmling for letting “corporate America” (Kum and Go) move in and destroy two of Kremmling’s long-standing businesses.

Sportsmans Quikstop has been open for 27 years, but closed for good on April 4.

Shop and Hop has been around for 16 years, but sadly, they too will be closing on April 30.

Because of this “change” that was approved by the town, there are now 13 Kremmling residents without employment. These 13 residents, some of whom have been here for 30-plus years, are responsible for the well-being of 25 children combined. (Probably didn’t think of how your “vote to change” would affect the lives of 25 kids and their parents.) These children may have a fancy school to go to, but who knows where or how they will live.

Thanks for changing the town we love into the next Summit County.

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to tell the people who stayed loyal ” thank you. We will miss you all.

Good luck, Granby. You’re next.

Sarah Ramirez, Kim Seltzer, Peggy Howell, Kendahl Rose, Savannah Ramirez, Randy Norman, Jesse Phillips, Melanie Bryan, Brian Baxter, Jordan Stauffer-Poindexter and families
