Meet Saguache Town Candidates for Mayor, Trustees
It’s 2016 – The BIG Election Year! And while a majority of the focus and media attention will be on November’s Presidential Election, local elections matter just as much, if not more so, especially in small, rural communities like Saguache. To that end, here’s a simple reminder about the Saguache Town election which will be held less than 5 weeks away, on Tuesday, April 5, 2016.
There are some upcoming “Meet The Candidates” opportunities voters should take note of on March 5 and 19. The events will be held from 2 – 5 p.m. in the Saguache County Road and Bridge building located at 305 3rd. St. in Saguache.
This event is sponsored by the Saguache Chamber of Commerce and the Friends of the Saguache Public Library. These events are open to the public and everyone is welcome to come and get to know the people who will be representing the Town of Saguache.
The Town of Saguache Board of Trustees includes a mayor elected at-large and 6 Trustees elected at-large. This April, voters will fill 4 (four) of the Trustees positions, as well as the Mayor.
The following list of candidates was acquired from the Town’s Clerk and Recorder office, although the actual ballot may list the candidates in a different order:
