Ghetto or Godsend... Is the Aspen Housing Authority taking advantage of us because we have no choice!

I love living in Aspen... I love Working in Aspen... Unfortunately my work situation doesn't allow me to "LIVE" without making some necessary and legitimate concessions... However many of my acquaintances as well as strangers over the last year or so have had a lot to say about the way our (That's what it is... "Ours") Employee Housing and the "Authority" as they call it is handled...

It is with great appreciation of the "real" folks that live and work here in the area that I open up my investigation into the Aspen housing authority and its inner workings...

Some of the accusations are borderline criminal and shadow the operations of some of the east coat crime families I've done stories on in the past... I'm not being dramatic. I'm talking about muscling folks out of their deposits... Not repairing problems... Basic decency and all around respect...

I will be focusing on specific people that work for the Aspen housing Authority as well as getting council from local figures both public and private...

I firmly believe it's worth taking these people and the Housing Authority to task and hope to get to the bottom of what seems to me to be a very poorly run, dangerous and all around unfortunate living process that we as the "Workers" here in the valley are forced to deal with..

If you have a story, complaint, or a compliment regarding all facets from renting to owning then I urge you to comment here and I will address them... one by one... with the appropriate authorities or head pencil pushers in the departments that are relevant...
