Marks will unite Aspen

Dear Editor:

As longtime residents of Aspen, we strongly support Marilyn Marks for mayor. Marks is the only candidate with a clear vision of how to successfully return our local economy to its thriving, prosperous state, and she is the only candidate with the ability to do it.

Marks is not driven by ego, she is not resentful of the “haves,” and does not have a personal agenda. She recognizes the value in Aspen’s talented residents and business owners … you and me, and she wants to put that talent to work! Marks intends to shrink our overgrown government and to incorporate local voices from outside of City Hall to generate fresh ideas about what is truly needed. This is the way to unite our community and restore our economy.

Marks is the only candidate with innovative, viable ways to pick up the pieces from the past two years. Her eloquence and her deep understanding of the needs of our local community put the incumbent to shame. We have confidence that Marks will genuinely ensure that each of us continues to enjoy Aspen for the countless reasons that we choose to live here. We can successfully ride the current storms with Marks at the helm, and we are counting down the days until she is there!

Kristeen Church and Whitney Foley
