Vail candidate forum is Thursday
VAIL — The Vail Chamber & Business Association is sponsoring a Town Council Candidate Forum from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 at Donovan Pavilion. The event is presented by the Vail Board of Realtors. The forum will provide an opportunity for each of the seven candidates to introduce themselves and field questions from panelists and the audience.
At least two new council members will be elected Nov. 5, since current member Kevin Foley is leaving due to town term limit requirements, and fellow member Kerry Donovan has decided not to seek re-election.
Two incumbents — Susie Tjossem and Greg Moffet — are running for re-election. The other candidates are: Dale Bugby, Sounia Nejad Chaney, Dave “Bone” Chapin, Jenn Bruno and Meighen Lovelace.
For details about the forum, call the Vail Chamber & Business Association, 970-477-0075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Replays of the candidate forum may be viewed on Public Access TV 5 and on the web. For show times and video on demand, go to http://www.publicaccess5.org. For more information on the election, including voter registration and early voting, go to http://www.vailgov.com.
Remember, the county mail-ballot election is a separate process. Town council voting will be in-person at Vail Town Hall.
It would be really hard to spark a wildfire anywhere near Vail Mountain or Beaver Creek right now. Still, unattended campfires will always draw attention.
