Moffet seeks return to Vail Town Council

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Former Vail councilman Greg Moffet, known for his colorful Hawaiian shirts in council chambers, has announced that he is running to regain a seat on the board.

There are four open seats, and Election Day is Nov. 8.

Moffet, 53, previously served two terms, from November of 1999 to October of 2007. Over those years, Moffet points to the creation of Vail’s gymnastics facility, Donovan Park and Pavilion and the kick-off of several private and public redevelopment projects as council highlights.

“During my time off of council, I’ve been able to see the town though a different lens,” Moffet said. “My wife, Chris, and I are officially, as of this year, empty nesters with our two daughters in college. I would be honored if voters will allow me to return my passion for and focus to the community.”

Moffet, president and owner of Tiga Advertising, which provides display advertising space on buses and in airports, says he is a pro-business candidate who understands Vail’s resort-based economy because it is how he makes his living.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

“I talk with merchants and business owners daily so I have a very real and immediate sense of what’s working and why,” he says. “Right now, we’re seeing tremendous positive results from Vail’s revitalization and a big year for Vail Mountain. But with the national economy still very volatile and unemployment high, we need to continue strong fiscal management, find a solution for Timber Ridge, and stay a step ahead of other resort towns – all while maintaining and growing socio-economic diversity in Vail.”

Moffet has long been committed to bringing more families to Vail to live year-round: “I don’t want to lose the soul that brought my family here permanently in 1994.”

Moffet is currently serving on the Eagle County Planning Commission and the Vail Economic Advisory Council. He is also a member of Vail Rotary and was recently named to the board of Taste of Vail.
