Why are you seeking this office?
It may sound cliché, but I am running because I love our city! Now is the opportune time for me to serve my community. Littleton has experienced a wonderful, and sometimes challenging, transformation over the years. I want to play a part in the unfolding story of our beautiful city.
What makes you the best person for the job?
I have the energy and enthusiasm to continue moving our city forward in a positive direction. I have been paying attention to what is happening. I want to be part of the future and work through the tough decisions that will help keep Littleton the community we all love.
If elected, what would your approach be to growth and development in the city?
The city of Littleton looks very different from 50 years ago. Cities are fluid. They change with the influx of new families, young couples, even senior citizens. I was not born or raised in Littleton, but when my family moved to 80120 we were welcomed with open arms! Smart growth can be beneficial to a community if it’s done with forethought and planning. The Envision Littleton process, with the updated Comprehensive Plan, has been an impressive effort. I recognize there is a lot more work ahead and I want to be a part of that process.
What can be done to alleviate traffic congestion in the city?
Since 1937, Littleton has evolved from primarily open and agricultural land to a thriving city. Being connected to a major metropolitan area that continues to see unprecedented growth presents traffic issues that irritate but challenge us. I will be committed to being proactive and I will work with regional and state partners to identify a cohesive approach for adapting to our ever-changing society. Perhaps we could initiate pilot projects that test advanced technologies that will maximize our safety and increase access to mobility choices. No one person or decision will help alleviate traffic but we can continue our collaborative work.
What else do you want voters to know about you and your approach to city governance?
Council deals with issues that affect people closest to their home like property issues, land use, and laws that effect quality of life. Those issues are important to me. I want to make sure we deal with them in a way that supports our community now and into the future.
