Why do you want to serve on Littleton City Council?

I’ve lived in Littleton for 17 years, and I’m in a position to give back to our community. I believe I have the work ethic and commitment to make a difference. I have made a commitment to the community and businesses to be available. Collaboration and communication are the foundations of my campaign.

What would your approach be to managing growth and development in the city, if elected?

Managing growth and development are key issues in this election. I believe we must create a vision, and then execute a Master Plan for the city before we can approve development. Not every proposal is the right fit for a piece of property. City council must be open to collaborate with the interested party to find a solid solution.

Amid rising housing prices, what can city council do to ensure young families are not priced out of the city?

This issue is a concern for every community along the Front Range, and not easily answered. Littleton has done a good job of promoting our city, and unfortunately the market is driving home prices. City council can be open to further development of multifamily, single-family homes, apartments and condos, but it must be the right project for the property.

What can city council to do improve traffic flow in Littleton?

Traffic congestion is a major concern, and only getting worse. The development of Sterling Ranch means more traffic on Santa Fe. Everything like flyovers and an HOV lane from C-470 to Bowles will cost a lot of money that the city doesn’t have. Perhaps we could run a trolley bus between downtown, Breckenridge Brewery and Aspen Grove.

That would keep a little traffic off of Santa Fe, and help with downtown parking. There is no easy answer, and city council needs to stay front and center.

What two issues need more attention than the current city council has given them?

Littleton Fire Department and Emergency Rescue: There are reports that show how Littleton Fire Rescue can save Littleton a substantial amount of money. These reports must be brought to light so the new city council can decide if it’s the right decision for the taxpayers.

Housing: Our market is hot right now, and there doesn’t seem to be a slowdown in sight.
