Letter in support Skippy for Council
I will be brief and to the point, I support Skippy’s run for City council.
As someone who was born and raised in Aspen I care deeply for the future of my home. I have put a great deal of time in the last few years into bringing the art, events, voice, and viewpoints I think this city needs to maintain its vibrancy.
Sometimes those efforts have left me discouraged that although we live in the best place on earth, we don’t have enough people thinking about community, or working towards a future that we would all want to be a part of.
I haven’t given up on creating the Aspen I want to be proud of though, and that is partially due to seeing others working towards the same goal. Skippy, has been both relentless and consistent in his willingness to learn about this community, (P&Z commission, Next Gen), and to offer solutions to our collective challenges.
I want to see radical and revolutionary ideas for how Aspen will be a climate solution leader. I want us to be a more engaged and connected community. I don’t want our rivers damned. And yes, I would like to be able to own a house here one day. Thanks for working hard to understand Aspen's challenges Skippy, lets overcome them together, I support you.
