Skadron would represent city best

Dear Editor:

I am supporting Steve Skadron for mayor for two reasons. He has shown great success in helping Aspen protect our environment and public health. He is also what we need more of in political leaders: calm, thoughtful and reasonable, taking a balanced approach to weighing issues.

I believe he will best help Aspen be the town we all came here for – with clean air, gold-medal fishing streams and commitment to wise energy use. He also has been a strong voice for keeping Aspen’s scale and character so that visitors will continue to want to come here.

Steve listens and carefully considers issues, does not bring extreme views to the table and has shown his commitment to and love of Aspen. I hope the voters will elect such a person as our next mayor.

Lee Cassin
