New town logo

Buena Vista’s new town logo was approved in 2016.

Three positions on the board of trustees will be open for the general election that takes place April 7, and the deadline to stop by to pick up a candidate packet from town hall is Jan. 7.

If you’re interested in running for a position on the board of trustees, you’ll need to pick up a nomination petition and get 10 signatures from registered voters who live within town limits to become a candidate.

“Public service can be challenging and frustrating at times, but it’s also rewarding—just ask any current or past trustee,’ said town clerk Paula Barnett.

Barnett asks prospective candidates if they have an interest in local issues and public service, the time and commitment to attend two board of trustees meetings per month, and to read through (sometimes lengthy) board packets in advance so you’ll be well informed when you arrive, the flexibility to attend various other types of meetings as assigned, such as those held by intergovernmental organizations and Town Advisory Boards and the ability to work with all types of people, a willingness to listen to the concerns of your neighbors and constituents, and a knack for coming up with common-sense solutions to the challenges facing our town.
