Elect Mesirow to City Council

Editor’s note: The following letter was written before the addition of a sixth City Council candidate.

There are five great candidates running for two seats on the Aspen City Council. Each one could do a great job. It’s too bad we can’t elect ’em all. So how do you choose?

One candidate offers something that none of the others can. He’s young, energetic and has a proven track record of bringing smart new ideas to fruition.

I’m an older guy (not sure when that happened!), and I have enjoyed working collaboratively with Skippy Mesirow on several projects over the past few years.

Diversity is a good thing. When it’s time to choose your two, pick Skippy for sure — and then add your favorite from the remaining list.
