Schendler’s loyalties may be divided

Ski Company vice president and Basalt Town Council member, Auden Schendler endorsed two fresh, new candidates. In Auden’s own words, they see eye to eye with him.

Basalt needs council members that represent the people of Basalt as their top priority not the Skico.
