Why are you seeking this office?
My reasons for running for town council are multifaceted. To begin with, my heart is within the community for which I have lived and strived in for 19 years. Parker is home for me and will be until the end of my days. I will be fully retired as of 2019 and able to devote my time. This is an opportunity for me to work in an area that I am passionate about.
What makes you the best choice for this office?
I am the best choice for town councilmember because my main focus and direction is and will be that of the community of Parker. I represent no business but the business of Parker. My sole interest is that of the community and keeping it prosperous and fluid, keeping it one of the safest communities in Colorado and one of the most desirous places to raise a family and live.
What are the most important duties of a member of council?
To represent and engage the community in the town council decision-making process affecting them. Purposeful work on the town of Parker Master Plan 2035 and the Community Engagement Framework. Implementation and adherence to ethical business and societal standards. Confidentiality in all executive sessions of town council matters. Regular attendance at town council meetings on behalf of the community.
What should be done to ensure a high quality of life for residents as the town's population continues to grow?
There should be no negative change in the standard of living. Developers and Realtors seeking to do business in the Town of Parker will build residences comparable to what already exists. Said business should adhere to industry standards and governmental ordinances both state and local. As a member of the town council it is my duty to ensure this occurs. No Amendment 64 business in the Town of Parker. Continue to bring in businesses that contribute to the Town of Parker tax base.
What will your top priority be if I am elected to office?
It is important to Parker residents that we keep the “home-town feeling” and “prosperous lifestyle” of those who live in Parker. My goal is to keep it that way. I will seek feedback and foster positive relationships within the community, businesses and town government as to how we can accomplish this.
