Candidate Profile: Richard “Dick” Curtis

Richard A. “Dick” Curtis

Age: 60

Occupation: Owns and manages rental properties

Triple Crown: “Verdict is still out” on whether to use city funds for a sports complex to be used by Triple Crown. Decision should be dependent on location of complex and who else can benefit from it. Believes Triple Crown needs to show how an extended relationship with the region will benefit residents.

Steamboat Springs Airport: Whether it remains open boils down to fiscal responsibility. If the city has sufficient funds to continue to operate the airport in future years, Curtis will support it.

Smoking ban: Supports it. “I don’t believe it’s a taking of personal privacy rights. I believe it’s a public safety and welfare issue.”
