Frisch thanks Aspen
Thank you, Aspen! The campaign for the City Council election was exhilarating and gratifying. The race itself was well mannered and collegial. As I said from the outset, it was a privilege to run alongside five highly qualified and respected people: Steve, Scott, LJ, Marcia and Cliff. Our community, including myself and my family, is better off thanks to all of the candidates’ creative ideas and dedication to our town. I also want to congratulate Steve and Mick on their re-election. I am looking forward to serving with both of them as well as Derek and Torre.
I am honored and humbled by the outpouring of support I received. I feel very fortunate to have connected with such a diverse group of supporters – residents who live in affordable housing and free-market homes, city and county employees, small business owners, non-profit workers, and citizens of all ages and political perspectives. I look forward to representing your interests.
To those who did not vote for me, I will work hard to earn your trust and respect. Regardless of person, position, or tenure in our community, I will work with everyone to ensure the long-term sustainability of Aspen, especially as it relates to protecting our small-town character and our much-needed affordable housing program as well as facilitating a vibrant economy for locals, guests and part-time homeowners.
I also want to thank the businesses who offered up their space for my many “office hours”: Peach’s, Main Street Bakery, Pitkin County Tavern, The Cheese Shop, Zane’s Tavern, Ute City Bar and Grill, CP Burger, 520 Grill, The Red Onion, Cantina, Hickory House, ink!, Jour de Fete, Little Annie’s, Victoria’s, Boden’s Butter, Parallel 15, and a special note of thanks to Emily and Gil at Brunelleschi’s and Brad, Duncan and the rest of the Aspen Brewing Company gang. We are lucky to have so many great local businesses in Aspen.
To my kids Felix and Quintessa, I am sorry for all the missed family time. But after knocking on the doors of over a thousand voters, I can confirm that you are indeed being raised in a wonderful and caring (not to mention opinionated!) small-town community.
Lastly, a deep hearted thank you to my wife Katy for her devotion, computer work, volunteer coordination, and most importantly, for carrying my share of the family duties. It also goes to prove that behind every successful candidate is a spouse wondering “what the heck are you thinking?”

It’s hard to fight City Hall and even harder to fight well-funded neighbors who don’t want any development near them, a local man has realized. So he settled for less than what he and his partner bought the property for.
