Profession: Public affairs

Resident of Castle Rock for 10 Years

Campaign website: Facebook, LinkedIn and NextDoor

Why are you seeking this office?

Because I am invested in the Town of Castle Rock and believe in preserving our special community for mine and future families. Castle Rock is a unique town with a distinctive culture and I want to represent the needs of the neighborhoods in my district effectively so that we are able to maintain the attributes that brought many of us here. I love Castle Rock and am committed to serving my neighbors with distinction.

What makes you the best choice for this office?

I bring a unique voice as a single mother and a person who has served our community in a variety of capacities. I have a master's degree in Public Administration and a reputation for being a strong advocate and voice for people on a variety of important issues. I am a servant leader who wants to champion the neighborhoods in my district and give my community a reliable, passionate voice in the process.

What are the most important duties of a member of council?

To maintain fiscal responsibility and stewardship of taxpayers' hard-earned money, remembering always that the council member is accountable to the people and should be responsive to their needs while keeping government — and costly bureaucracies — out of their way.

What should be done to ensure a high quality of life for residents as the town's population continues to grow?

Long-term sustainability is key, especially as it comes to water use. Also, it is important that our master plan be updated to reflect the significant infrastructure needs in this town. We must maintain and steward our resources, keep taxes low, be particular about development and while being business friendly, understand that growth and development must be strategic and well planned.

What will your top priority be if you are elected to this office?

My district requires a person who is concerned about the safety of our neighborhoods. We have significant traffic safety issues that warrant an urgent response. The impact of Castle Rock's growth has been felt in District 3 in a myriad of ways and I intend to make sure neighborhood voices are heard loudly and clearly on our Town Council while also remaining responsive to the dynamics of a quickly growing district.
