Amendment 66 would amend the Constitution of the state of Colorado and institute a permanent additional tax. The money so raised would go to a privileged class that has separated itself from the health care and retirement systems of the general population.

It is time to decide on who to elect onto our Vail Town Council! The biggest question I have to answer before I can decide on a candidate is, why is that person running?

I think it is important for Avon voters to understand the question on the Nov. 5 ballot is about improving and expanding our Recreation Center and building a new playground.
