Aaron is one of the nicest, reasonable, and most experienced people I have met running for council. He is younger, has a family, and has served for 5 years on our planning board. He gets how the city works, yet, somehow, he is not ‘bought and paid for.’ He honestly listens to people he disagrees with, and even goes out of his way to challenge his own views and to understand yours. He reminds me of one of my other favorite politicians in this regard – Will Toor – who served our city and our county admirably for many years. I have not seen someone with this much promise to do good for our community since Will retired from politics. My own confidence in Aaron is reflected in his wide range of endorsements across the political spectrum, including Open Boulder, Better Boulder, the Sierra Club, and the Boulder Daily Camera.
