Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
Millennials were the target of a recent column penned by a baby boomer who says he’s alarmed by the statistics, which paint a weak generation.
But a columnist who is a millennial and writes about her generation regularly, has a different viewpoint.
Meanwhile, ballots are beginning to arrive in mailboxes throughout the valley and so are the donation checks to candidates. So how much influence do supporters have over their office seekers?
And the democratic party in Garfield County is hammering on a republican candidate who is a 20-year incumbent.
Finally, the race for the district attorney may also be influenced by money but ground support is likely more powerful.
Joining me this week are Randy Essex, editor and publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent, Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News, Glenn Beaton, columnist for the Aspen Times, and Aspen Public Radio’s Barbara Platts.
