Letter: Adam for Aspen
It has been a true honor to represent all of Aspen for the past four years on the City Council. I am running for re-election for the Aspen City Council because while Aspen has a wonderful history, I truly believe our community’s best days are ahead of us. Our community needs leaders who believe in this brighter future, not those who want to go back to the past.
I am proud of my track record of implementing goals in a positive and respectful tone so that all members of the community are comfortable engaging in a productive dialogue. Our ability to debate one another in a respectful manner is what makes us a cohesive community, even with a very wide variety of views. There are not one or two “Aspens”; each person has their own vision, and it is what I think is so great about this town.
If re-elected, I will continue to work on furthering our next generation’s economic vitality, providing a stable and long-term funding source for our critical health and human-services programs and ensuring that our much-needed affordable-housing program is sustainable and anticipates the changing needs of workers and retirees for years to come, all while preserving Aspen’s unique, small-town character.
I am very proud of the work that this council has done in accomplishing many of our top goals of the year. We approved four lodges by a cumulative vote of 18-1 that will provide more than 200 new rooms for our very important bed base. We are about to sign energy contracts to honor the community’s long-standing goal of reaching 100 percent renewable energy for the city of Aspen’s electric grid. We are also creating a resiliency plan that identifies Aspen’s climate-related vulnerabilities and establish a plan for reducing those risks as we continue to see more and more frost-free days per year.
