Aspen’s city council runoff election candidates set for another Squirm Night

With the Aspen City Council runoff election approaching, The Aspen Times along with other local media outlets will host the second Squirm Night of this election May 31.

Co-sponsored by GrassRoots TV and the Aspen Daily News, we will be moderating a debate between the runoff candidates: Torre and Ward Hauenstein.

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.

This version of Squirm Night will start at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday 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 as well as the Facebook pages for The Aspen Times and Grassroots.

Mail-in ballots are due June 6. Walk-in voting at the City Clerk’s Office is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each weekday until June 5 and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on election day. The Clerk’s Office will be open Saturday, June 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for voting.
