Aspen voters go to the polls Tuesday in the first March general election in town history. They'll decide on a new mayor and two council members. Also on the ballot is a question about whether to approve a major redevelopment plan at the base of the west side of Aspen Mountain. The Lift One project, as it's known, has been the subject of some passionate argument on either side. KDNK presents a point/counterpoint on the proposal. Allyn Harvey, who is a paid member of the Yes on Lift One campaign, speaks in favor. Steve Skinner, who is not a resident of Aspen, speaks in opposition.
