Letter: Johnson will be a thoughtful mayor

Johnson will be a thoughtful mayor

Dear Editor:

One of my co-workers, among many friends and locals, have asked me why I am campaigning for Derek Johnson. This is my response:

Derek is a good honest man. He has proven himself to be an intelligent, driven man through his personal and 20-plus years in Aspen business endeavors. He has always been open-minded towards others people’s opinions and listens and learns from his peers and mentors. He educates himself on the matters at hand and does not just rush into things. He listens to all sides of a debate or discussion before making an informed decision. He is going to be a fair and thoughtful mayor.

Derek has a vision for Aspen’s future and I believe he will do what is right to help us move forward. He wants prosperity and vitality in Aspen. Derek wants our children to have a bright future in our city where they can afford to work and live and some day raise their own children. He wants our city to be a thriving destination. Derek wants Aspen to be alive, a vibrant community and he is smart and determined enough to get those things done.

Please join my husband Dominic and I in voting for the future of Aspen. Vote for Derek Johnson.

Emily Lanese
