Letter: Applauding the Old Power House process

Applauding the Old Power House process

Dear Mayor Skadron and Aspen City Council members,

What an amazing opportunity Aspen’s Old Power House can offer not only for the community of Aspen but our resort guests as well. I applaud the way in which the city has managed the selection process and I applaud all of the applicants for their well-thought-out business models and presentations.

There have been many times over the years where I have not envied your position when challenged with the real tough community decisions. The Old Power House operator decision is another one of those times.

The final submissions all have their unique selling points, but I believe one stands above the rest. I have followed the process closely from the very beginning and I have come to the conclusion that the Aspen Brewing Co./Aspen 82 submission is the one to chose. Broad appeal. Promotes entrepreneurism. Engages the young professional and the young at heart. Encourages collaboration. Generates thought. Provides lights, cameras and action. Creates vitality and vibrancy. And serves it all up with a cold Aspen Blonde. I especially like that.

I hope you join me and say “cheers” to Duncan and David and their Old Power House proposal.

RJ Gallagher Jr.

Aspen
