ASPEN – Cemetery Lane resident Adam Frisch, 43, has officially announced his candidacy for the Aspen City Council.

Frisch, who describes himself as a self-employed entrepreneur, has been a full-time Aspenite since 2003. He was a currency trader in New York City for 10 years before moving to Colorado.

For the past 18 months, he has served on the Housing Frontiers Group, an advisory board to the Aspen-Pitkin County Housing Authority. The board deals with various issues, such as solutions to deficits in homeowner association capital reserve funds. Also, Frisch has chaired the Financial Advisory Board for Pitkin County for the last six years. He has served on the boards of several local non-profit groups, including Aspen Youth Experience.

City elections will be held May 3. Contests will include two council seats and the mayor’s post. Councilman Steve Skadron and Mayor Mick Ireland already have declared their intentions to run. No other incumbent will be running because Dwayne Romero vacated his council seat last month to join Gov. John Hickenlooper’s cabinet.

Frisch ran for Aspen City Council in 2008, but fell just short of winning a seat. He said his 2011 campaign primarily will focus on three issues that he regards as most important to the community: affordable housing, land-use planning and financial accountability.

A 1990 graduate of the University of Colorado in Boulder with a B.A. in economics, Frisch is married with two children. He has invited the public to attend his “Adam for Aspen” campaign launch party Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Brunelleschi’s, 205 S. Mill St.
