PLEASE NOTE: An asterisk (" * ") indicates a particular position held was a result of winning a direct election or it was based on a position already held for which a related election occurred. In the case of having won election to the Electoral College delegation for the Democratic Presidential Slate in a statewide contest held at the State Party Convention, because Bill Clinton failed to carry the State in 1996 and Al Gore failed to win the State in 2000, no vote was cast either time by Aaron. In the case of The Colorado Statesman, the formal listing as a Contributing Columnist began in 1999. Years given for all entries are best estimates and are approximate in most cases. Due to his work in the Media, Aaron no longer holds any partisan political positions.
