Vail Daily letter: Buckley for Avon council
October 20, 2016
Change is coming to Avon! By the end of 2017 the fire station, police station and the current town hall should be vacated. When that happens, planning for the repurposing of those areas will need to be addressed by Town Council. This will involve determining what the Avon residents would like to see along with analyzing if it is feasible and financially reasonable.
With the current election coming up, this brings that opportunity to choose new council members that will bring expertise to this and many other decisions that council will need to make. Peter Buckley brings previous council experience and an engineering degree to the table. His passion for community involvement and continued presence at the Avon Town Council meetings enables him to hit the ground running, with little or no learning curve. In fact, when the current Town Council made the decision to not provide a tax break to Sun & Ski, Peter Buckley was the only one that understood the procedures. He indicated that the council needed to vote on their decision while the town manager indicated that no vote was necessary. This provided a conclusion to the numerous business owners and managers that were in attendance while providing direction to the town manager. Peter Buckley is the person that will bring balance to the Town Council and provide solid decision-making while being financially conservative. Vote Peter Buckley for Avon Town Council!
