Vail Daily letter: Strong ethics needed in Eagle

An open letter to the aspiring Eagle Town Board candidates: Will you pledge the creation and implementation of a code of ethics for the Town Board of Eagle and town staff if you are elected?

In my opinion, a strong ethics policy is overdue. I believe we could have avoided the recent unfortunate events of two of our trustees.

At the very least, officials of the town of Eagle should not be able to plead ignorance about taking gratuities and other conflicts of interest.

Ethics is a strong point for these three candidates: Paul Witt, Kevin Brubeck and Pappy Kerst. Plus, they have a proven track record with experience on our Town Board in the past. Check out http://www.buildabetter for more information.
