What Aspen needs
Dear Editor:I support Tim Semrau for Aspen’s mayor. After watching him on the council for four years I know he is even-tempered, even-minded, thoughtful and thorough with his decisions. He is the voice of reason in any situation. A small-business owner with a construction company and two retail stores, he understands business and the effects of an economic downturn (recession!). Remember downtown Aspen from 2000 to 2003 when we had 30 vacant storefronts and there were more apartment ads than ads in the help wanted section?Tim is reasonable, fair and professional. He will make certain that all who want to participate in the decisions of city governance will be heard and respected. If you want to know him better please watch his videos on YouTube. They are short and to the point. It won’t take but a minute to find out what he is about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meHr8c242TATim came here to ski 20 years ago and fell in love with Aspen. He has raised two children and became a builder to put a roof over his children. He then did the same for 39 other locals and families. This is a man who knows how to create solutions and make it happen! We need a business person to lead City Council and make city policy. Who better than someone in the construction field to devise a construction management plan? Your vote can make a difference. Early voting continues through Friday, June 1, on the second floor of City Hall. Be a participant in the affairs that affect Aspen today!Thanks for you time now and on Election Day.Ruth KrugerAspen

Joe Biden became the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, declaring that “democracy has prevailed” as he took the helm of a deeply divided nation and inherited a confluence of crises arguably greater than any faced by his predecessors.
