This could eliminate the need for more taxes on a county that is already burdened with some of the highest health care costs in the state. as noted in a 2016 study done by the Colorado Division of Insurance.  It would certainly make this tax more palatable to the voters, and frankly, spending double the amount would probably provide some excellent care for many local residents in need.

The following article was initially published in the Vail Daily online edition Saturday August 26, 2017 for a few hours and was intended to be published in the print edition August 27th.  It was suddenly pulled from the online edition, and the next morning I got a call at home from Mark Wurzer, publisher of the Daily, that it was pulled for "further review" but would be published the following week.  Next I got a second call from Mark on Wednesday that they had made the decision not to run it.  No specific reason was given, but they did agree everything in the piece was correct.  I had sent them 14 .pdf files of VVMC documents to prove my assertions were correct. 


The VVMC (or Vail Health as it is now known) is one of the Daily's largest advertisers.  Anyone care to speculate the reason for the Daily not publishing this?
