It was my honor to be your first town manager from 1979 until 1988. It was an exciting time as we were a newly created town and there was a "can do" spirit that all of us felt. Together, we accomplished many things that set the stage for Snowmass Village to emerge as a world class resort.
With Snowmass being a major economic engine of Pitkin County, we need to establish a solid working relationship between the County and the town in order to continue our mutual efforts of seeing you prosper in these difficult times.
With the opening of the Westin and the maturation of the Viceroy I feel that good times are ahead for the resort. It would be a privilege to help create a positive atmosphere as your county commissioner. I will work hard to see that you have a voice in the important business of running Pitkin County.
Please vote for me on Nov. 6. Thank you.
