I’m running to represent you & the real-world, everyday concerns of Longmont’s Ward 3 residents.
• safe, healthy, and thriving neighborhoods.
• a small business champion.
• advocating for equity & inclusivity in our community.
As your Ward 3 City Council representative, I will advocate for solutions that positively impact our quality of life.
My experience as an educator means that my passion embodies an urgency for what’s at stake:
• Our children
• Our future
This is the engine that fuels my ability to pragmatically address the serious issues of our community, whether it is housing affordability, our schools, the health and safety of our community, sustainable energy, and our overall livelihood and well-being.
Building a stronger Longmont by putting community first
My mission is to ensure families and our most vulnerable residents have a voice when decisions impacting our schools and community are being made.
As a full time public employee, and a St Vrain Valley educator for 15 years, I strongly believe that our working class must be adequately represented on city council.
I believe coalitions proactively strengthen communities and provide support for those that need it. And I have experience building those coalitions, working as a St. Vrain Valley negotiator with our school district. I have the vital skill set to advocate good and effective policy that helps everyone move forward.
Housing Affordability: Wages continue to lag far behind the cost of living in Colorado. That’s why it’s critical that we come up with effective solutions so that residents stay in Longmont and thrive — with home ownership being an attainable goal.
Small Business: We’ll develop innovative strategies for folks that want to start a business in Longmont to stay in business.
Our Environment: Longmont will lead in addressing our climate crisis with a critical and thoughful approach to development (using the Smart Growth SES tool), supporting SB 181 at the local level, preservation of the riparian areas along the St Vrain river corridor, ensuring resources for Longmont’s Sustainability Plan, and holding the city accountable in taking the necessary steps to reach the 2030 goal of 100% renewable energy.
Inclusivity/Equity: My passion for human and civil rights has played an essential role in shaping who I am. I understand the roots of bias and how to promote conversation and connection.
I will listen. And we will come up with solutions together.
