Aspen businessman and geologist Todd Mitchell was reappointed to Colorado’s Air Quality Control Commission last week.

Mitchell has worked extensively in the energy industry and has served on the nine-member state board for three years. He runs a venture capital fund that backs development of low-carbon energy.

The governor-appointed Air Quality Control Commission is tasked with regulating air pollution in Colorado. The goal is to meet or exceed national air quality standards and to protect Colorado’s scenic and natural resources.  

Mitchell’s term runs through 2020.

 

Aspen native Elizabeth Stewart-Severy is excited to be making a return to both the Red Brick, where she attended kindergarten, and the field of journalism. She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
