The Aspen Resolution (1999-2001)

In 1999, the hard work of CAIRCO's Mike McGarry and Aspen City Council member Terry Paulson paid off.  The city of Aspen passed Aspen Resolution #114 supporting population stabilization in the United States. Pitkin county followed suit.

Then during 2000 and 2001 Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform leaders and activists (Mike McGarry, Terry Paulson, Fred Elbel, and Frosty Wooldridge) met with city and county governments across the state to gain support for resolutions at the local government level which would support sustainability and U.S. population stabilization. While testimony in favor of the resolution was repeatedly presented in city council meetings, none of the cities mustered the courage and foresight to pass a similar measure.
