Create the Vote Santa Fe 2018 is comprised of people, businesses and organizations working in the creative industries in Santa Fe.
The 2018 mayoral and city council election gives Santa Feans the chance to discuss the strengths and challenges of our city and to debate our vision for Santa Fe in the next 4 years and beyond. We are following the upcoming 2018 election closely and want to learn more about the mayoral and council candidates positions on issues important to the future of our creative economy. All of the candidates will be asked the same three questions on this topic in early January 2018. Candidate answers will then be posted online for public access.
The mayoral candidates will also be invited to share their positions and ideas about the creative economy at a public forum February, 6th, 2018 from 6:00- 7:30 pm at the New Mexico History Museum. The mayoral panel will be moderated by local producer and radio host, Mary-Charlotte Domandi. Registration for free tickets for the February forum will open 2 weeks prior to the event.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! ¡NECESITAMOS TU AYUDA! We are crowd-sourcing the questions that will be presented to the candidates and posted in January. Please take part in a community poll to determine the three “creative economy” questions most relevant to the community.
