Your Vote Counts By Stacy Winstryg

Election time is just around the corner, and your vote has never been more important. Vail residents have the opportunity to make their voices heard by casting their vote on November 8th. Whether you choose to vote through early ballot or go to the polls, the important thing is to vote!

We hope that you have been following our work over the last year. We are proud to say that we have accomplished much of what we set out to do. The main objective of the Vail Parent Network was to inform and educate citizens about key issues that affect Vail and to elect education-friendly legislators. People are talking, people are asking questions. This is the first step in making positive changes and finding solutions to fix our education system in Arizona.

We want to remind you of the candidates that the VPN has endorsed:

Drew John and Mike Holmes for Legislative District 14 House of Representatives

Jaime Alvarez for LD14 Senate

Allison Pratt, Callie Tippett, and Mark Tate for Vail School Board

We would also like to remind you to be informed regarding Prop 449, the Vail School District override renewal. The district needs to renew its current override to protect 100 teachers. Further, in order to attract and retain the quality teachers that we have come to expect and love in Vail, an additional 2.5% will go directly to non-administrative salary increases in order to give them a much needed  raise!

If you are a Vail resident and live in either Legislative District 10 or 2, email us, and we will be happy to answer any question you have about who is running in your district. Our email is

Thank you for all your support this last year! We look forward to working with our legislators and school board members to improve education her in Vail and in the state of Arizona.
