Good afternoon, it’s Mountain Edition.
Today we have a special election show featuring the candidates running for office in Aspen.
Seven people are vying for two open seats on city council. Two are running for the mayor’s post.
Among other questions, we asked the candidates about a controversial ballot question called Referendum One. If passed, it would amend the City Charter to require a public vote on development projects with exceptions for height, size, parking or affordable housing.
Voters received ballots in the mail in April. The results will be tabulated on Tuesday May 5th - election day.
Aspen election coverage - ahead on Mountain Edition.
