Arvada is developing rapidly and experiencing demographic changes. I am an analytical and creative thinker with varied life and work experiences. I believe this benefits council’s leadership and decision-making. As Arvada continues to grow, I would like to ensure that new growth complements Arvada’s past while meeting the city’s changing needs. I believe in sustainable growth that enables proper maintenance of Arvada’s infrastructure while supporting economic prosperity and overall well-being for Arvada’s residents.
Your top three priorities if elected?
My top three priorities include working towards (a) greater transparency, (b) effective and wide-ranging communication methodologies to obtain more resident feedback, and (c) greater efficiency and effectiveness of our land development code to meet residential and business needs today and in the future.
What should the city’s role be in regards to homelessness?
Do you approve or disapprove of how the city and partners like AURA have handled city redevelopment of late?
