Shady Politician Killing Local Jobs
Aspen Adam bragged about running a covert government operation to push his job-killing agenda
While serving on the Aspen City Council, Adam Frisch secretly conspired with city staff to stage a year-long “emergency” shutdown of development in Aspen - killing construction jobs, choking off funding for affordable housing and intentionally circumventing Colorado’s open meeting laws.
During a 2019 candidate interview Adam Frisch openly bragged “for five months there was a pretty good well-kept secret as we worked behind the scenes” before he sprung his shutdown on an unsuspecting public. Previously The Aspen Times reported how he covertly was “discussing an emergency moratorium…outside of the public eye…so, they could keep developers in the dark about their intentions”. Why did Frisch do that? Because Frisch hates development so much that he was willing to create a fake “emergency” so he could rewrite Aspen’s land-use code. Frisch was quoted as saying, “We love the idea of environmentalism, but that really requires some environment density, but we’re not really a big fan of density and heights”.
Within 24 hours of making his scheme public, Frisch’s shutdown was approved and took place immediately, killing blue collar jobs people from towns like Rifle depended on to earn a living.
