Poschman’s promise

Aspen District Judge Chris Seldin, left, administers the oath of office Tuesday to Pitkin County Commissioners Greg Poschman, middle, and George Newman on the steps of the Pitkin County Courthouse. Poschman began serving his first term at a commissioner work session later Tuesday afternoon, while Newman began his third term. Poschman takes over the District 3 seat vacated by former Commissioner Michael Owsley, who served the maximum three terms allowed on the board. Owsley attended his final meeting Tuesday morning before Poschman's official swearing-in and showed off his trademark mismatched socks before giving up his seat.
