Getting behind 2A

Dear Editor:

Hello, Aspen!

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that the current economy – not to mention the AIG effect – has made the job of marketing Aspen more challenging than ever before. We can choose to sit on our hands while retail and restaurant businesses continue to struggle to just get by, OR we can try to make a difference for our town.

As the sales and marketing director for Sky Hotel, I cannot think of an easier way to start turning our economy around than to vote Yes for 2A. As a member of the lodging community – and a private citizen – I am fully behind 2A. The added marketing funds which 2A will provide can only help us to let the world know that Aspen is open for business and better than ever!

My car has a small bumper sticker that says “My life is better than your vacation – Aspen, Colorado.” Vote Yes for 2A, and let’s keep Aspen that way for all of us!

Alan Cardenas
