A well-known retired politician around Aspen is taking another run at city council. Former Mayor Mick Ireland says he’s seeking a council seat in this spring’s election. The former mayor says his emphasis will be on moderate, sustainable growth that respects the community’s character with a keen eye on land use and zoning issues.

“We need some more through thinking about our future and we need an alignment of our values with our land use code… and I think we have gotten a little off track.”
