Dear Editor:

I submit this letter to clarify a recent misquote in a letter you published. The letter writer, Michael Goldberg, quotes the Daily News to say “Torre endorsed Mullins and Carlson…”

Here is the letter I have sent to Mr Goldberg in response:

Hi Michael,

Just wanted to write to you in reply to your letter to the editor, and set the record straight. I actually did not endorse John Carlson. After endorsing Ms.Mullins and giving reasons I could not vote for Dwayne or Art, I said that if I were to cast my second vote, it would go to John. Hardly an endorsement, though I am proud of his initiative to participate in this election.

If this were your only concern about my qualification to be Mayor, then rest assured I, as much as anyone, know the seriousness and issues in this election. I know that you are supporting another candidate but I feel we probably share many goals and hopes for Aspen.

Even more so, I would suggest that I am your candidate. I am the most experienced and capable of invigorating business, and stimulating both community and resort economies through events, marketing and access to Aspen initiatives. I have the record and vision that I believe make me the best choice for the next two years. I look forward to working with you, SkiCo, ACRA and other partners for a fun, vital, prosperous Aspen.
