Dear Editor:

We are writing to endorse Adam Frisch for Mayor.

Adam was one of the first people we met when we moved to Aspen almost 10 years ago, and we credit he and his wife, Katy, as being one of the reasons we chose to make this town our home. They were quick to convince of us of Aspen’s unique character and helped us understand how great it would be to live, work and raise a family here.

From the beginning, we have been impressed with Adam’s commitment to Aspen and the broader valley. In addition to him being a great councilman, he has served on various nonprofit boards, chaired the Financial Advisory Board for Pitkin County and worked on several affordable housing task forces. His passion for these activities is evidenced by him taking on leadership roles in almost each of these areas.

We feel Adam has done a great job on City Council. Always approachable, he has listened to our views on various issues, and when he didn’t have the answer to a question, he would connect us with someone who did. When discussing anything complex or controversial, he honors all viewpoints, and spends significant time understanding all sides.

We need to have this open-minded approach in our mayor; Adam will never be too quick to judge, and will always be thorough before coming to a conclusion or casting a vote. His approachability is evidenced by the office hours he has been holding during the campaign. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Adam, or hear his views on Aspen’s opportunities and challenges, we encourage you to attend his next office hours or to call or email him. He will spend time listening to you.

Adam’s business experience will serve him well if elected mayor. His financial knowledge will help make sure our town’s funds are well spent, and his desire to help create opportunities for local businesses is critical to our community. Aspen can continue to be incredible if we have an experienced and positive leader who is focused on maintaining Aspen’s uniqueness and making sure local families have opportunities to be successful, while also recognizing the importance of visitors to our ongoing vitality.

We hope you will join us in voting for Adam for mayor. You can vote anytime this week at City Hall, or on Election day, Tuesday, May 7.
