Campaign website: Facebook.com: Renee Williams for Parker Town Council

Why are you seeking this office?

Town council can shape our town now and in the future. I am lucky enough to live, work, play and serve in this amazing community. My friends and family reside here, my business has flourished here, and I enjoy all our town amenities. I believe in giving back to my community. I have done this in numerous ways throughout the years. Town council is another way to give back and continue to serve my community.

What makes you the best choice for this office?

As the only town council member that is not term limited, it is my responsibility to continue to carry out the town's mission, vision, goals, strategic plan, and core values. It's important to listen to our constituents, communicate, and be transparent. Town council must partner with other service providers for the betterment of the town as a whole. My educational background, business acumen, and town involvement make me the best candidate for Parker Town Council.

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

The Town of Parker has a council administration form of government, with town council and mayor elected at large. Councilmembers make policy decisions for the local government and approve the budget. Councilmembers, by the Town Charter, enact and provide for the enforcement of ordinances, which are town laws. Councilmembers also hire, supervise and direct the town administrator, who carries out the council's directives and is responsible for all other town staff and day-to-day activities.

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

With continuing citizen input, the Parker Master Plan, Guiding Documents and P3 have been created. These tools all help ensure our quality of life and should be followed and updated as needed. The Master Plan and Guiding Documents establish a framework and further describe our community's goals, vision, and strategies. P3 enhances Parker through collaboration and investment in the community by bringing together developers, residents and local government to encourage projects that improve the community.

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

An appropriate infrastructure must be in place for the additional rooftops and businesses that desire to call Parker home. Infrastructure includes smart transit solutions (multimodal transportation, traffic management, road capacity) and attainable housing (granny flats, employer involvement). Solid town finances (buy local campaigns, spending reductions, project deferrals) are also important. I will continue to work with all stakeholders to find creative solutions to these and all other challenges we face.
