Buddy Lazier bows out of Vail council race

VAIL, Colorado – Buddy Lazier has withdrawn from this fall’s Vail Town Council race.

The Vail Town Clerk’s office was notified Oct. 14 about Lazier’s withdrawal as a candidate for the Vail Town Council in the Nov. 8 regular municipal election. Lazier submitted a “statement of withdrawal by candidate” form to the Vail Town Clerk – that form does not ask for a reason for a withdrawal.

Vail Town Clerk Lorelei Donaldson said the notification came in time to remove Lazier’s name from the election ballot, which will be printed this week. That ballot will show seven candidates, who are, in order:

• Farrow Hitt.

• Ludwig Kurz.

• Andrew P. Daly.

• Rayla J. Kundolf.

• Stephen Connolly.

• Margaret Rogers.

• Greg Moffet.

The three candidates receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to four-year terms, while the candidate receiving the fourth-most votes will be seated to a two-year term.

Also on the Nov. 8 ballot is Question No. 1, which will ask Vail’s voters redirect money first approved for a conference center – a project which was later rejected – to three projects:

• Expansion and improvement of the clubhouse at the Vail Golf Course and Nordic Center, including multi-use community space.

• Field expansion and restroom renovation at the Ford Park Sports Complex.

• Ford Amphitheater improvements, including outdoor seating and restroom improvements.

Early voting for Vail’s election is Oct. 27 through Nov. 4. The last day to complete an application to forward a mail ballot to an out of town address is Nov. 1. Applications are available at the Vail Municipal Building or on the town’s website at http://www.vailgov.com.
