Town of Avon Recall Election – Mayor Sarah Smith Hymes

 

Reasons set forth in the petition for demanding the recall of Mayor Sarah Smith Hymes:

 

The Avon Recall Committee believes that Avon Mayor Sarah Smith Hymes is acting contrary to Avon residents’ desires. For example, the Vail Daily reported member’s arrogance, that there is no appetite among taxpayers to use public funds to move the barn, and quoted a council member stating “I do not support sending this to the ballot, because it won’t pass” Citizen’s pressured the council to do a public survey about spending millions to move the barn. The survey revealed a whopping 891 against the move and only 104 for it. It is clear that Sarah Smith Hymes is putting her own opinion in front of those of the community. 

 

YES   285             NO    798

Total votes: 1,083
