Basaltines: Get those ballots in today
Election day has arrived in Basalt with races between two candidates for mayor and six candidates competing for three council seats.
There is no polling place because ballots were mailed to all registered voters. It is too late for voters to return the ballots via mail, so they must be delivered to Town Hall, which will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.
The mayoral race is between Jacque Whitsitt and Rick Stevens.
The council candidates are Leroy Duroux, Rob Leavitt, Jennifer Riffle, Herschel Ross, Auden Schendler and Katie Schwoerer.
All terms will be for four years. New council members will be sworn in at a special meeting April 19.
Squirm Night at the GrassRoots TV studio Wednesday evening for Aspen City Council candidates drew out some lively discussion showing differences in the candidates, if not entirely heated, in the short hour they had.
