Better, not bigger

In Councilman Semrau’s “full disclosure” at the end of his editorial defending infill in the Aspen Daily News he left out one tiny piece of information: Councilman Semrau makes his living as a builder.

It is no surprise to hear from a builder that more building is what Aspen needs.

Aspen has never had more built square footage than it does today. And yet our current government is promoting more building as the solution to revitalize Aspen. We can make Aspen better without making it bigger.

It’s time to take control of our city government back from bureaucrats with hidden personal agendas. Vote for change in the upcoming election.
