Candidate ‘speed dating’ is Friday in Edwards

Daily staff report

EDWARDS — King Realty International and American Family Insurance Friday host a “speed dating” event for Eagle County residents to meet and interact with this years’ electoral candidates and ballot initiatives experts in a unique setting. The event will be held in the Battle Mountain High School cafeteria from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday.

“There are very qualified candidates running for office and ballot initiatives that that will impact Eagle County residents for years to come as they cast their ballots in the upcoming election.

“Every vote counts and we feel all residents should have a first hand, face-to-face opportunity to meet the candidates and discuss the many ballot initiatives so they can make an informed decision come election day” said Tracy Horn, owner of King Realty International. “In partnership with Trace Tyler, the owner of Vail Valley’s American Family Insurance Agency, we felt passionate about creating an atmosphere that would allow the candidates and Eagle County residents to come together in a comfortable, fun and educational way.”

“We wanted to ensure this event would not be a debate,” Tyler said. “Rather, it is an opportunity for each candidate and ballot representatives to have an private area for Eagle County residents to meet with them in a small group setting. After a few minutes we will signal that one minute remains for each session and a second signal will notify the residents when to move on to their next session.” Trace explained. “We are looking forward to a fun evening that will assist the Eagle County residents to make informed decisions as they cast their votes this election year.” he added.
