Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.

Nancy Rice, the chief justice of the Colorado Supreme Court, was in the Roaring Fork Valley earlier this month. She met with the local bar associations and visited the courthouses in the Ninth Judicial District. She also spoke with Aspen Public Radio’s Carolyn Sackariason about pay raises for judges and how local rulings are handled in Denver.

 

This is Aspen Public Radio. I’m Christin Kay. Aspenites are deciding now and in coming weeks who to elect as mayor and who fills two council seats. There’s been a few public debates and the candidates are starting to show their colors. Aspen Public Radio’s Carolyn Sackariason moderated two debates and has attended others.

Aspen mayoral race: Torre

The race for mayor in Aspen has become more heated as election day gets closer. Two people are running for the seat. Ballots will be counted May 5th. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen sat down with candidate Torre.

Torre isn’t a newcomer to city politics. He served eight years on council. This is his fifth attempt to become mayor. The tennis instructor has lived in town for two decades and says he’s running because he feels the public’s voice has been lost.
