Running For: City Council 

Candidate Statement: I am running for City Council because I love Aspen. I met my wife of 36 years in the Bell Mountain lift line. We have two children that were born here, went to school here and both learned to ski at age 3. We, along with a couple of friends, started the Aspen Gymnastics program. We have dedicated our lives and time to raising our girls in this community, endless white knuckle drives to the front range for hockey, gymnastics and soccer included. I have more time now.

Running for: City Council

Candidate Statement: Dear Aspenites,

Over the past several years I have had the privilege to serve our community as a founder and two-term Chair of the Aspen Next Generation Advisory commission, current Chair of the Aspen Planning & Zoning commission, and helped launch critical community non-profits like the Aspen Mentorship Program, Aspen City of Wellbeing, and Aspen Entrepreneurs. These relevant experiences have shown me what is possible and motivated me to seek the opportunity to serve our community as your Council member.

Running for: City Council 

Candidate Statement:  These questions are over simplistic and too black & white. Each issue mentioned has an impact on another so ranking is difficult and potentially not meaningful. I support protecting our valleys, our rivers & steams, and our people, and I will do everything I can at the council table to accomplish that goal.

Running for: City Council

Candidate Statement: I am running for office to reconnect our community to the policy making of the Council and represent the voice of the people. Please cast one of your votes for Torre for Council.

Running for: City Council

Candidate Statement: My skills come mainly from my years as a university biology professor ... grant writing and federal grant reviewing, writing, research. I have lived in Aspen for 20 years.
