Aaron is in many ways a prototypical Boulderite: Computer programmer, Holiday neighborhood homeowner, father, community-minded volunteer. As Chairman of the City’s Planning Board, he has spoken out repeatedly against overreaching no-growth initiatives, such as the proposed building moratorium in 2014. He has shown a determination to speak his mind and argue for moderate, effective solutions to the City’s challenges, especially related to land use, housing, open space, and transportation. And he’s a strong facilitator, often bringing people with disparate views together to find common ground. His is the kind of voice Open Boulder believes the City needs right now.
