I am writing to endorse Maurice Emmer for mayor of Aspen. I have known Maurice for more than five years. We served together on the city’s Budget Task Force where I was very impressed with both Maurice’s financial acumen as well as his ability to analyze a complex situation and draw logical and articulate solutions.
I also support Maurice’s intent to implement a more productive and efficient governance system for the city which more closely adheres to the structure that is outlined in the City Charter. Over the past five-plus years I have had numerous opportunities to interact directly with Maurice and I have consistently found him to be someone who is thoughtful and willing to consider multiple points of view, which are traits that we badly need in Aspen.
