Profession: Business owner
Resident of Castle Rock for 31 years
Campaign website: randyreed4mayor.com
Why are you seeking this office?
This is the first time in 30 years that the citizens of Castle Rock have the opportunity to vote for their mayor. This transitional time requires experience, knowledge and leadership. I have a proven track record that establishes integrity, experience and principled leadership consistently demonstrating respect to the citizens.
What makes you the best choice for this office?
The office of mayor doesn't allow for “on the job training." Serving on Town Council and serving as mayor, for a combined six years, has given me the governing experience and knowledge of issues (water, transportation, growth, business development) to best serve as the first at-large mayor. This experience combined with my positive relationships with state and county officials qualifies me and allows me to be effective immediately, to “hit the road running."
What are the most important duties of the mayor?
Lead, listen, act in the citizens best interest, preside over council meetings and work collaboratively with town commissions. My accomplishments, as mayor, demonstrate these duties.
Budget: Reduced due to economic downturn without forfeiting quality of life; Transportation: Ring-Road, I-25 widening, Plum Creek Interchange; Business Development / Employment: Guaranteed County offices remained in Castle Rock, brought the following to the town: hospital, specialty grocer, craft store, movie theater; Water: Secured storage for Castle Rock's future needs
What should be done to ensure a high quality of life for residents as the town's population continues to grow?
To lead toward a common goal to be thoughtful and respectful stewards that will build and maintain a thriving community to live, work, and play happily and securely within.
What will your top priority be if you are elected to this office?
To make the proper residential development decisions in the town, respecting the unique topography of where we reside.
