Tanya Relyea, candidate for Castle Rock Town Council, District 3

Profession: Business owner, financial analyst

Seven-year resident of Castle Rock

Campaign website: www.facebook.com/Relyea.District3/

Why are you seeking this office?

I've always been an advocate for people and willing to stand up for what is right. I want to be a strong voice for residents and small business owners as our community grows. I will be open minded to both sides of issues and really listen to the people in our town. I will make decisions that best reflect the needs of our overall community and not just my opinion.

What makes you the best choice for this office?

I have an uncanny ability to see the hidden issues in great ideas and help teams overcome them towards a greater good. I do this in my own small business every day. in our town, having someone with not just a good business sense but great instincts as well would put Castle Rock in a prime position to face and embrace the growth and changes in a positive way.

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

I believe the number one most important duty of a council member is to truly listen to the community.  It is of course our job to be well read on the issues, but no decision should be made without taking the voice of the people into consideration.

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

While budget talks occur, I want to make sure we don't neglect all of the wonderful programs and services that have brought and continue to attract people to Castle Rock. This is an amazing town full of fun events, beautiful parks, pools, trails and more! We need to keep funding for our experiences here as well for the fine people in our police and fire departments that keep us safe.

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

I want to encourage more small businesses in town. It goes without saying that many are concerned with the influx of big box and corporate brands that have come to the Promenade. We are a small town at heart and need better representation of that. I would like to work on a plan to relieve financial pressures from small business so they can succeed in CR and more would be willing to open here.
