Profession: Health care cost-savings expert
Resident of Castle Rock for 10 years
Campaign website: Facebook: Vote for Kevin Bracken Castle Rock, Town Council - District 3
Why are you seeking this office?
I have served the Castle Rock community since I moved to town as a coach, mentor, and I want to bring my experience and values to serve on the town council. My professional experience directly relates to making critical decisions with large budgets, assessing positive or negative impact on the institution, measuring fiscal financial viability, and saving money. I know I can impact this town positively and continue to help Castle Rock continue to thrive.
What makes you the best choice for this office?
I'm a very hard worker and I commit 110 percent to whatever I do. I finished sixth place in the Olympic Games. My volunteering and coaching for kids and professionally saving millions for hospitals and patients has set me up to be a leader on town council. Hard work is how I have accomplished everything in life. I will apply my experience, I will work hard, listen to the community and do what is right.
What are the most important duties of a member of council?
To listen to the citizens of Castle Rock, represent them and the town's best interest. Support decisions that can positively impact the town. The goal of being a councilmember is when your term is up you know the decisions you have made leave your successor in a better position than when you were elected.
What should be done to ensure a high quality of life for residents as the town's population continues to grow?
Castle Rock needs to make smart decisions about where and how we spend our tax dollars. My experience in project management, managing teams, deployment of action plans, and restructuring of large hospital programs is the perfect fit to handle town business. Once I am elected, I will be able to perform a closer review of where the town is spending money and recommend an appropriate approach based on my experience.
What will your top priority be if you are elected to this office?
To work for the town as hard as I did in my athletic career and work life. To better understand the impact of future growth to our town. Assess future change to our town, differentiate growth, and responsible growth. Define where the potential ROI for the town can help impact Castle Rock. Make decisions with the town's best interest in mind for Castle Rock to continue to thrive even after my term is finished.
