Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
The primary election results are in. Two valley natives will advance to the fall election for a Pitkin County commissioner seat. And in Garfield County, a candidate has been selected who will be serving his sixth term as a commissioner. In the Colorado congressional race for the third district, it’s going to get interesting between Democrat Gail Schwartz and Republican Scott Tipton.
And, a conversation about the Pitkin County commissioner race last week on this show was tainted by a guest who failed to disclose his active campaigning for one of the candidates.
It’s been said that all politics is local and with the Aspen Ideas Festival in full swing here this week, politicos from around the world shared their thoughts.
Finally, the makeup of Carbondale’s board of trustees could change this fall now that there is at least one challenger for the mayor’s seat.
Joining me this week are Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent, Andy Stone, former editor of the Aspen Times and now a columnist and Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News.
