Hall is best leader for Ketchum

    Both of us have had the opportunity to work with Mayor Randy Hall during his tenure, particularly on marketing and arts-related initiatives. We continue to be impressed by his commitment to Ketchum, his excellent leadership skills, his work ethic, and his ability to identify and pursue what’s best for this community.
    Hall has long been a vocal advocate of a more pro-active marketing effort, and it is because of his unwavering support and leadership that the Marketing Alliance is making strides. He also recognizes that the arts are key to both creating a vibrant, year-round community and to setting us apart from other resort towns. He not only drove the creation of the Ketchum Arts Commission, but continues to encourage its growing number of initiatives: 1 percent for art, annual art exhibitions, the wrapping of utility boxes with original art, and plans for art to be incorporated into the transit hub and the bike path. These are among the reasons Ketchum was named one of the top 12 small cities for art in the U.S.
    As volunteers, there are numerous issues and organizations to which we could dedicate our time and effort. A key reason we have done so for the city of Ketchum is because we believe in the direction it’s headed, and we give Mayor Randy Hall credit for keeping the city government focused on that path. We think he is best suited to continue to lead Ketchum forward.
