VHA Online Candidate Election Forum
The Vail Homeowners Association gives Vail Town Council candidates the opportunity to provide written answers "in their own words" to questions gathered from members of the community. Each candidate's responses are posted on the Association's website. Click on the candidates listed below and see the answers they have submitted to date. We'll send you additional updates as the campaign proceeds.
VHA's questions address the candidates' qualifications as well as their views on issues important to Vail's voters and property owners. The first 6 of 15 questions are listed here:
In what neighborhood do you live and how long have you resided in the community; are you a residential property and/or business owner and do you belong to any community or homeowner organizations? If so, which ones?

YOUR VOTE MATTERS!
This November 5th, Vail's registered voters will decide who will fill four of the seven seats on the Vail Town Council. With Vail's limited population of registered voters, every vote counts. Early voting begins October 24th and continues thru November 1st.
Due to changes in the state's election laws, the Town of Vail no longer automatically mails ballots to all voters who had previously requested to vote by mail. We encourage you to verify that you are registered to vote and to request a mail-in ballot now if you do not plan to vote at the polls. Completed requests for mail-in ballots must be received by October 25th.
