Why are you seeking this office?

Not only do I love Parker, I have a passion for our town. I ran in 2016 and I am running again because I want to see Parker continue to succeed and be prepared for the future in terms of responsible growth, infrastructure, safety and increased revenue. I believe I have the experience and drive to make a difference in these areas.

What makes you the best choice for this office?

I am the best choice for Parker Town Council because my first and highest priority will be to listen to you and represent your interests in this town. I have nearly 25 years of corporate leadership experience as well as experience serving my community in elected office and volunteer opportunities.

What are the most important duties of a member of council?

Council members are equal parts legislative, judicial and executive. One role does not take precedence. A councilmember must bring new ideas for ordinances and actions that will improve our town. A councilmember must judge elements of projects and proposals on their legality, their merits and their impacts and benefits to the community. A councilmember must lead the town through the appointment of a town administrator, attorney and judge, and enforcement of the laws.

What should be done to ensure a high quality of life for residents as the town's population continues to grow?

The quality of life that we enjoy in Parker is amazing. Most of us can walk out our door and be on a trail or in a recreation facility within minutes. As we continue to grow, we must focus on infrastructure, securing open space when available, support law enforcement in their mission to keep us safe and create opportunities for everyone to enjoy Parker's lifestyle.

What will your top priority be if you are elected to this office?

When elected, I will look forward to the opportunity to roll up my sleeves and address infrastructure needs and solutions for Parker, bring new ideas to increase revenue sources (non-tax) within the town, address safety and crime to ensure law enforcement has every tool to continue their critical mission, continue addressing transportation needs and address how we grow responsibly and inclusively to afford the opportunity for everyone to enjoy what we love about Parker.
