1) Why are you the most qualified person for this office?
I have the background and experience to tackle the tough issues facing Westminster. Our city will seat three new city councillors and a new mayor during this election. Yet, the pressing issues facing Westminster are not going to wait as we break in a new council. From my time working in the public policy arena, to my legal background, I have the experience needed to step in on day one and address the challenges facing our city.
2) What is the most important issue facing Westminster and how will you address it?
Westminster’s police and fire services are the most important functions of our city government. I will work to ensure that those who protect our communities are given the resources they need. Additionally, we need strong, vocal advocates who will continue to fight for Westminster’s interests in the RTD FasTracks program. The Westminster Mall site redevelopment will also be a top priority for the new council, with the ability to leave a lasting legacy for our city for years to come.
3) What do you think the city does well and where do you see room for improvement?
Our Police and Fire departments are staffed by some of the best first responders in the state. I am proud of the professionalism and efficiency of those departments. The city also does an incredible job of maintaining and protecting our quality of life. If there is one thing the city can improve upon, it’s engaging more people in the decision-making process. My slogan in this campaign is “neighbor to neighbor,” as I truly believe that community input will allow us to best solve the issues facing our city.
4) What is your favorite thing about living in Westminster?
I love hiking on the trails with my family, I love taking advantage of our wonderful recreation centers, I love seeing the beautiful open space throughout our city. What I love most, though, is the people. We have a wonderful community, and I hope to represent that community on the City Council.
