Why are you seeking this office?

I am seeking a seat in Wheat Ridge City Council District 2 because Wheat Ridge is my home and is a great community. As a Colorado native and long-time resident of Wheat Ridge, I want to see the community succeed in working together with the City.

What makes you the best person for the job?

I am the best choice because I am very involved in the community. I truly love our city and believe that actions speak louder than words. I will not put my personal or financial interests above what is best for the city, I will base my decisions on what the community wants. As your rep, I will work hard to present transparent information and thoughtfully listen to both sides. As a small business owner, I know the value of working together to navigate challenges and opportunities. I will represent my district with integrity, compassion, transparency, and honesty.

What are your top three priorities if elected?

If elected to City Council, my top three priorities for Wheat Ridge would be to manage growth, zoning, and development by working with residents, city staff, and business owners, emphasize the importance of attracting and maintaining strong businesses into our community, and providing a safe community-focused environment for all of our residents.

What is your view about what should happen regarding the Upham property rezoning?

In regards to the Upham property rezoning, I feel the introduction of so many multi-unit box buildings is excessive for a one-block span. I have concerns regarding the safety of students at Stevens Elementary and the safety of residents on the road in addition to the impact this may have on single-family residents that have been established in this area for generations.

Which qualities would you most want to see in Wheat Ridge’s next police chief?

Some qualities I would like to see in our next police chief include; strong community focus, leadership skills, effective communication, the ability to solve problems, active engagement in community organizations and schools, compassion, and integrity.
