An elected official in Pitkin County has given away the thousand bucks someone left at her house anonymously earlier this year. Carolyn Sackariason has the details.
Commissioner Patti Clapper came home to an envelope left on her front gate with 10 $100 bills. She turned it over to the police, where it was held in evidence for a couple of months.
She was waiting for gift giver, who wrote on the envelope “for past good deeds,” to come forward and confirm it wasn’t politically motivated. The donor never came forward so she gave it away.
