Edwards Metro District Candidate Profiles

2020 Board Elections

Be Informed

Vail Valley Partnership exists to develop and enhance the economic vitality of the Vail Valley and Edwards Metro District. Through our public policy initiatives, we inform our members and the public on important issues affecting the business community. VVP does not endorse candidates for public office and is a non-partisan organization. However, the Board of Governors feels very strongly that Partnership and community members should have access to information about all the candidates to help them make informed decisions on who they wish to represent them and as such, the Partnership has provided questionnaires to candidates seeking office for the upcoming election.

Through our questionnaire process, we are offering candidates the opportunity to communicate their perspective on community related issues. In turn, business and industry leaders as well as voters can review and utilize the questionnaires to learn more about the candidates in preparation for the elections. No changes have been made to the returned questionnaires, and they have been posted as received. The questionnaires were sent to candidates on April, 9 2020 to ensure the candidates had time to complete and return them. We encourage you to be an informed voter as your vote makes a difference for our community. For complete Edwards Metro District election information, please scroll down.
