Letter to the editor: Mayors for Marc

Posted

As former mayors of Arvada, we support Mayor Marc Williams’ re-election. Marc has a record of serving the best interests of all Arvadans and staying above partisan politics. We all should agree that there’s no such thing as a Democratic pothole or a Republican city park.
Seeking elected municipal office is something a handful of people are brave enough to do. The willingness of citizens to take the leap and throw their hats into the ring for elected office in Arvada may diminish if our elections become partisan popularity contests. That is why Colorado has a long tradition of nonpartisan municipal elections.
We are proud of our city, our history and traditions, and the bright future ahead. Marc has demonstrated his leadership by working collaboratively to address traffic and other regional issues, such as homelessness, and bringing more jobs to Arvada.
When there was a log jam holding up the Gold Line, Marc worked tirelessly to open our commuter rail, while promoting transit-oriented housing, shops, restaurants and parks. He has made Arvada safer through community policing. Marc has led efforts to add more pedestrian friendly sidewalks, bike lanes and multi-use trails. He helped expand opportunities for higher education by bringing a Red Rocks Community College campus to Arvada.
Those who know Marc understand how hard he works to ensure Arvada remains a great place to live, work and enjoy life. With Marc’s continued leadership, we know that Arvada will move forward.
Join us in re-electing Marc Williams for mayor on Nov. 5.
Vesta Miller,
Arvada Mayor 1979 – 1981
Ken Fellman,
Arvada Mayor 1999 – 2007
