Ask ’em

Election season in Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley is hot.

Newcomers will challenge incumbents in Ketchum, and Sun Valley. Hailey has a grudge match going in its mayoral race.

Lucky voters. The contests mean real choices of leaders and often strikingly different visions for the future of our valley.

One of the best ways voters can cut through the fog of promises and pap is to ask questions of candidates in the "Pizza and Politics" forums.

Hailey’s mayoral contest headlines tonight’s event at the Old County Courthouse at 6 p.m.

Incumbent Mayor Susan McBryant wants to retain the office to which she was appointed. Former Mayor Al Lindley is trying to recapture the post he resigned last year in the face of sexual harassment grievances filed by two city employees and a no-confidence vote of the City Council.

Ketchum will see two council incumbents face four challengers Thursday at City Hall at 6 p.m. Hot issues here include balancing the budget and approval of a Main Street hotel.

In Sun Valley, six candidates are vying for mayor and two council seats. They will face off Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 6 p.m. at City Hall. The city is grappling with hillside protection, community housing, the future of five acres of land on Sun Valley Road, and Elkhorn re-development.

Every November, voters become the most powerful force in the nation. By participating in "Pizza and Politics" forums voters can choose wisely.
