Aspen City Councilman Frisch to seek re-election
Aspen City Councilman Adam Frisch, who is serving his first term in office, will seek re-election in May, he said Wednesday.
The seats of Frisch, Councilman Dwayne Romero and Mayor Steve Skadron are set to expire in June, and all three are eligible for re-election. Skadron is seeking to defend his seat, while Romero remains undecided.
A Montana-native and Aspen resident since 2003, Frisch served as chairman of Pitkin County’s Financial Advisory Board from 2005 to 2011, when he was elected to the council. He said Wednesday that he is a proponent of the affordable-housing program, community-appropriate lodging and health and human services. Land-use variance control, he said, will be a key issue and suggested a community forum to address the issue.
“I think there’s a greater appreciation for the frustration on all sides — development and more importantly the community — and how variances get dealt with,” Frisch said.
