Letter: Letter to voters from Andy Israel

My candidacy for Aspen City Council is my first ever foray into politics. Running for office has proven to be quite enlightening. It’s not been 100 percent positive. Aspen is like a real-life “Game of Thrones.” All the various factions vying for influence, power and wealth. Manipulation, persuasion and strange alliances abound.

My political agenda is simple: I intend to promote fiduciary responsibility at City Hall. I want to double-check the numbers and better analyze the data. This will help our community make smart and more efficient decisions with the bountiful resources that is taxpayers’ money.

If I’m elected to be your representative, I will bring a unique skill set and plenty of real-world experience to the council table. I will attempt to improve communication between the council and staff and between the council and the public. Sitting in the basement of City Hall is not my idea of fun, but I am ready and willing to give something back to the community that I love.

I have learned that for each person in Aspen, there is a different vision for the future. As Aspenites, we don’t always agree on every issue, but hopefully we can agree to make Aspen the best it can be.

Andrew M. Israel
