Why are you seeking this office?

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to represent District I on City Council since my appointment in January. I believe my thoughtful approach to the issues has contributed to positive decision-making by Council, both for the benefit of the residents of District I and the City as a whole. I hope for the opportunity to continue to serve my community moving forward.

What makes you the best person for the job?

Recent surveys have shown that Wheat Ridge residents have positive views of the city as a place to live and are supportive of how the city has progressed over the past five years. Walking District I and talking to constituents confirms these results. In District I, I am the candidate best positioned to help us continue our progress, without losing track of who we are and where we have been.

What are your top three priorities if elected?

1. NRS Implementation. The NRS Update has provided a roadmap for giving our neighborhoods greater voice on issues of growth and change. 2. Safe Streets. We owe it to every member of our community to provide safe means of travel in and around our city, including walking, bicycling, and transit. 3. Improved Communication. We need to do a better job of making information available and giving people avenues to make their opinions heard.

What is your view about what should happen regarding the Upham property rezoning?

I voted in favor of the rezoning on Council and still support the project. I continue to believe that the additional commitments from the developer, particularly to work with the School District to resolve drainage issues on both properties, justifies the increased density. The protest was a legitimate exercise of citizen authority, and I support a “yes” vote on Ballot Question 2E.

Which qualities would you most want to see in Wheat Ridge’s next police chief?

One of Chief Brennan’s most impressive traits was his constant effort to find new ways to communicate and interact with the community in support of crime prevention and avoidance. I hope to see the new chief continue these interactions and to consider innovative methods of crime prevention and response.
