Local Forum a Success

Published by at 6:36 pm under Local News Affairs

The La Veta Candidates Forum was held Monday evening before a crowd of over 60 people.  Candidates for positions of Town Trustees and Mayor, opened the meeting with their position statements and why they wanted the position.  Moderator Sam Law asked each a series of questions and then opened discussion for questions from the audience. There were some clear differences between Mayoral candidates postions but most concurred that fiscal responsibilty and water would  continue to be the major Town issues concerning growth.  Candidate Popejoy and several in the audience suggested a need for  more transparency, more citizen input and a more welcomed spirit of dialog and support for business.  Elections will be held April 1, with only the Mayoral position being challenged, by Sid Popejoy against the   incumbent Mayor Mickey Schmidt.
