Unbecoming behavior for a commissioner

George Newman has exhibited his lack of class with his ad in the newspapers railing Donald Trump and asking his family to get involved in his political motives. People come to Aspen because we are the big kahuna of resorts, and we don’t harass our guests while they are here. Commish Newman apparently thinks it is his duty to lay a bunch of rubbish on the Trump family while they are trying to enjoy our beautiful resort. Where I come from, in River Hills, Wisconsin, this sort of behavior is expected from low-class citizens from the inner-city “hood.”

This type of behavior is expected over in Vail, not Aspen. George ought to pack up and go back to the south side of Chicago (South Cicero Boulevard), or Venice, California, or the south side of Milwaukee, where this behavior is appropriate.
