Aspen City Council runoff candidates on hot seat Wednesday for Squirm Night
The second edition of Squirm Night for the Aspen City Council race is tonight between runoff candidates Torre and Ward Hauenstein.
This version of Squirm Night will start at 5:30 p.m. at the GrassRoots studio, and there is limited seating for the public. The event will be telecast live on GrassRoots channel 12 and live-streamed on grassrootstv.org as well as the Facebook pages for The Aspen Times and GrassRoots.
The Aspen Times and the Aspen Daily News will be moderating the hourlong debate between Torre and Hauenstein.
As with the first night, those who would like to ask a question can submit them to the Times’ general email, which is email@example.com; on Twitter using #SquirmNight; or comment on our Facebook live feed starting about 5:15 p.m.
Torre (972 votes) and Hauenstein (894) were second and third in the May 2 election, but neither secured enough votes to win one of two seats outright. Councilwoman Ann Mullins was re-elected to a second term with 1,018 votes.
Mail-in ballots are due Tuesday. Walk-in voting at the City Clerk’s Office is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each weekday until Monday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. The Clerk’s Office will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for voting.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
