Come examine the candidates

Things can’t get much better than this: a night out for Sun Valley voters to fill their tummies as well as their heads.

But that’s the program this Thursday at 6 p.m. at Sun Valley City Hall—the regular election year Sun Valley Pizza and Politics forum, sponsored by the Mountain Express, where candidates for the town’s city council will appear to be examined on issues by voters.

This year, as never before, putting candidates on record with their views on issues affecting not only Sun Valley but the Wood River Valley is vital. And just as vital is the understanding of voters on how those views will affect their lifestyle and taxes in years ahead.

Pressures of growth are forcing the area’s communities into critical decisions that’ll influence the character of the area permanently.

In Sun Valley, among other things, the council is faced with preserving open space zoning, continuing support of the area’s vital KART transit system, developing plans for a performing arts center, and sharing in decisions with other communities that involve highway expansion and affordable housing.

Small as it is in population, Sun Valley and its citizens nevertheless play critical roles in preserving and continuing traditions that have made the town internationally famous and a stable partner in the Wood River Valley’s development as a major Rocky Mountain attraction.

The Idaho Mountain Express is distributed free to residents and guests throughout the Sun Valley, Idaho resort area community. Subscribers to the Idaho Mountain Express will read these stories and others in this week's issue.
