Aspen needs a fire escape

To Steve Skadron and Aspen City Council who refuse to consider a second bridge into and out of Aspen — we need a fire escape. Air pollution, traffic congestion, preserving the Marolt open space mean nothing compared to the value of human life. Imagine this: “Red Mountain under mandatory evacuation.” Missouri Heights is under mandatory evacuation now.
