ASPEN – Adam Frisch on Thursday became the first person to apply for an open seat on Aspen City Council that will be created by the departure of Dwayne Romero.

Frisch ran unsuccessfully for the council in June 2009. He said he is seriously considering running again for council in the next municipal election on May 3.

Romero resigned effective Feb. 28 to become the director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and Internal National Trade. He was asked by new Colo. Gov. John Hickenlooper to join his team. Romero’s four-year term ends in June, so whoever replaces him must run in the May election if they wish to keep the seat.

The city will accept applications until 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 17. Applications can be submitted to the city clerk’s office, online or faxed.

The four other council members will interview applicants and make an appointment by March 28.

Frisch, 43, described himself as a entrepreneur working on multiple business ventures. He and his wife Katie live on Cemetery Lane and have two preschool kids.

Frisch said he has long been interested in community service. “It’s in my blood,” he said.

He is interested in helping the city determine how to keep its existing affordable housing stock in the best condition possible for the longest time possible. It’s an overshadowed issue, he said.
