Vail Daily letter: Vote for Goulding

I am writing to ask your support for Todd Goulding in the election for the Eagle County Paramedic Services board. We need his experience and financial stewardship on this board.

I had the privilege of serving with Todd Goulding on the Avon Planning and Zoning Commission for four-plus years. During that time I watched his dedication and ability to manage the public’s business come strongly into play. After his time on Planning and Zoning, he went onto further serve the town as a councilman and mayor pro tem.

In addition to his service to the town of Avon, he has a wide and varied community service background having served on or chairing a number of boards, in both the public and private sectors. These include the board of directors of the Vail Mountain Rescue Group, Upper Eagle River Regional Water Authority and Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Officials Association and president of the Bristol Pines Homeowners Association,

All of this community service, plus his time as a Vail ski patroller and as a mission coordinator for Vail Mountain Rescue, has given him the experience with emergency service needed to be a productive member of the board of Eagle County Paramedic Services. He was a director of the Eagle County Health Services District from 2010 until 2014 when he stepped aside to facilitate the merger with the Western Eagle County Ambulance District. He was reappointed as a director to the new Eagle County Paramedic Services organization in 2014 and currently serves as treasurer. Todd’s focus has always been on current operations and long term viability of the district, including staffing, budgeting and long-term planning. He has a long history of being a strong steward of the taxpayer’s money and we need him to continue in that role through tough times that may be ahead.

I hope you’ll join me is voting for Todd to continue his role in helping our ambulance district maintain the quality of service we have all come to expect.
