TOM BOYD ENDORSEMENTS
“Having also grown up in the Vail Valley like Tom, we have in common many shared goals around community vision. First, is our desire to give back to the people who have shaped who we are today, and the places that differentiate our mountain community from others that we want to see maintained and thriving. Second, Tom recognizes the out-of-the-box thinking and decision-making the Town of Vail is making with increased private-public partnerships around housing, development, the environment and infrastructure. Tom’s commitment to enhancing relations and partnerships throughout the county, with its municipalities, and many private and nonprofit entities is exactly what we need for the foreseeable future.”
Vail Native; Mayor, City and County of Denver

Co-Chair, Eagle County Housing Task Force; Town of Vail Planning & Environmental Commission

I have worked with Tom on raising awareness of the critical need for workforce housing. Tom knows how to get things done! I support Tom and believe as Commissioner he will support the right balance of development and wildlife preservation for Eagle County, smart growth, and efficient transportation for the region.
Vail Resident, Town of Vail Council member
"Tom's lifetime of service to this community gives him the ability to work well with municipalities throughout Eagle County. He understands the need for thoughtful growth, and transportation, for the working population."
Eagle Resident, Water Expert
“Our next County Commissioner needs to have a deep understanding of all the subtleties surrounding water issues in Eagle County. I’ve worked with Tom Boyd on water issues and he has that understanding. He’s a thinker and a leader who happens to have been born and raised in Eagle County. He has my support.”
Eagle Resident; Former Chair, Eagle County Democrats
"There are only a handful of candidates that I will enthusiastically and publicly support 100 percent. Tom is one of them. He is an approachable, optimistic problem-solver who easily engages with the people around him. I look forward to seeing his contribution to the work of our Board of County Commissioners."
Rancher, Outdoorsman, Edwards Resident
“Tom was here and remembers when almost all of this land was ranchland. He was here when the elk and deer herds were a lot bigger and healthier, and the streams were less crowded and accessible. He understands that we need to be mindful and protective of what makes life special in Eagle County.”
Avon Business Owners, Rumpelstiltskin

As Avon business owners and early childhood educators at Rumpelstiltskin Preschool, we have seen firsthand how much Tom cares deeply about childcare in this valley. His dedication and passion for improving childcare services are evident in his actions and advocacy. Moreover, his role as a caring father and husband further exemplifies his commitment to nurturing and supporting families. I am confident that Tom will make a significant impact in addressing our County's childcare challenges with the same passion and determination he has shown in all his endeavors. He has our full support in making a positive difference for our community."
