Name: Caryn Ann Harlos
Profession: Paralegal and Registered Parliamentarian
Why are you running for council?
To keep government small and accountable.
What is your approach to governing growth?
The market governs growth naturally, government makes things worse.
What are your top priorities and how will they be addressed?
No new taxes and advocate repeal of the most burdensome excessive ones. This is done through council advocacy and not pushing things through on the ballot.
Metro issues are starting to impact Castle Rock and Douglas County as a whole - How would you address homelessness in Castle Rock?
Empower private charities and religious organizations to assist.
What are the biggest challenges facing the town?
What are the biggest opportunities and good things happening in Castle Rock now?
Castle Rock's people and environment are like heaven on earth - we need more freedom and less government.
Crime is also a regional issue impacting the Denver metro area - What is Castle Rock doing right to address the issues? Where can Castle Rock improve?
Focus on actual crimes that harm people and property and lay off victimless crimes.
Castle Rock asked voters to approve four tax measures in 2021 - The measures were aimed at improving public safety and addressing growing traffic concerns. As the population grows - What do you think Castle Rock should be doing to be proactive and stay on top of roads and infrastructure and the growing need for more firemen, officers and stations?
I opposed those taxes. I dispute the need for more of the government enforcement arm.
(Editor's Note: There was a mistake in the Oct. 13 print edition of the Douglas County News Press and Castle Rock News Press stating the wrong district for Caryn Ann Harlos and Max Brooks. Both Max Brooks and Caryn Ann Harlos are running against incumbent Council member Caryn Johnson in District 5.)
