Hi Vail. I am Samantha Biszantz, but please call me Sam. I am running for Vail Town Council and I am asking for your support.

Vail needs innovation in leadership. Vail needs creators of opportunity to continue the strong legacy of so many of us: moving here, falling in love with Vail, figuring out how to stay. I want to make that story continue to be a possibility for anyone who wants it — because it’s who we are, and it’s who we need to be moving forward. 

I am a co-owner of two small businesses in Vail Village — Root & Flower and Two Arrows. I am a deed-restricted homeowner. I am an active advocate, including six years of service on the Commission on Special Events and having founded multiple series to inspire and support our front-line service workers (e.g., entrepreneurship, mental wellness). I am a lover of wildflowers, hiking, skiing, golf, good food and wine, and above all creating opportunities for good and hard-working humans.

Vail deserves to be a livable, vibrant, and sustainable community. A livable Vail is a town with attainable homes and high-quality systems, from transportation to schools to utilities. A vibrant Vail is the community-oriented, cultural, and economic epicenter of the valley. A sustainable Vail offers social, economic, and environmental fulfillment.

I promise to make well-informed decisions that properly represent the diverse people who make Vail go round. I will work tirelessly to build consensus with my fellow council members and town staff to create public-private partnerships that are supportive of Vail’s visions and goals, rather than punitive to our constituents and partners.

By balancing fiscal responsibility with visionary courage, I have proven one can foster community cohesion while building a successful business. You do not have to choose one or the other. I am committed to doing the most good, for the greatest number of people in the long run, while preserving the character and outdoors we love.

Your opinions and your voices matter to me: please visit to my contact information. And please register to vote! Thank you.

Sam. For Vail!
