  1. Why are you the most qualified person for this office? Meeting with residents, I continually hear their distrust in the decisions being made for our city. Concerns about water rate increases, the re-development of the old mall site at the expense of tax-payer dollars, not being transparent in communicating all information to residents/business owners, and making decisions without community input are all reasons why I’m running to bring a new perspective and diversity of thought to council. My career in public transportation has instilled in me the value of being transparent and accountable. I’ve learned to listen to all sides of an issue and consider how it impacts people. Furthermore, I have the courage to uphold convictions to adopt policies and practices that are necessary for Westminster’s long-term health.
  2. What is the most important issue facing Westminster and how will you address it? Growth and development—we have lost oversight on maintaining infrastructure. It’s placed a strain on resources, including our water/waste water infrastructure. With me earning a council position, residents will have a champion in their corner. I’ll add reasonable thought on how we are building our community. I’ll bring a focused and strategic look at what we are executing, all while bridging the communication gap by listening to all community and business voices, striving for more conversation on how we solve issues.
  3. What do you think the city does well and where do you see room for improvement? We have phenomenal open space and an excellent fire and police department. An area of improvement is how the city is communicating with residents and businesses. There needs to be an invitation of collaborative solutions before making decisions.
  4. What is your favorite thing about living in Westminster? This is where I was raised and continue to call home. We have a thriving city where we have established communities, easy access to open space, and is geographically in a wonderful location. The overall quality of life in our community is ideal, and these are a just a few of the many reasons why I bought my home in Westminster.
