I am pleased to be running for reelection to the Golden City Council representing District 2. For over 15 years, while serving on City Council and numerous City boards and commissions, I have worked tirelessly to preserve and enhance what makes Golden great–its historic character, unique neighborhoods, and engaged citizens actively participating in the strategic direction of the town we cherish.
The City has accomplished a lot in my time on City Council and I’m proud that my voice and actions have made significant contributions in many of these efforts. For example,
- In recognition of the rapid pace of growth and development in Golden and the front range, I was instrumental in advocating for a residential building moratorium and for changes to our municipal planning codes to better protect the unique feel and character of our Golden neighborhoods from the ill-conceived bulk, size, mass, scale, and design of new development.
- I successfully advocated for a much needed integrated transportation master plan to better guide Golden’s capital investments for streets, bike lanes, sidewalks, and transit.
- I was instrumental in creating a new Mobility and Transportation Advisory Board to more actively involve Golden residents in key City decisions regarding all aspects of mobility in our community and advise Council on issues related to roads and streets, sidewalks and crosswalks, and parking.
- I successfully advocated on Council for the City to take the necessary steps to explore creating our own municipal broadband network so Golden residents, businesses, and institutions can get the essential internet access they need at prices they can afford.
One of the things that makes Golden so special is our long history of neighbor-driven solutions to the challenges facing our City. Whether the issues were implementing a growth management system or protecting our mesas from development, some of our best ideas and efforts have come from the bottom up by the mighty band of community patriots that call Golden home. Which is why I think one of my most important duties on City Council is supporting and nurturing these grassroots efforts. If reelected, I promise to continue working hand-in-hand with you and your neighbors to be a champion for your ideas and solutions for the City we all love.
From the Golden Sustainability Initiative to Vision 2030 and numerous neighborhood plans, by working together we have created a strong framework for guiding the future of Golden. I will work tirelessly to ensure we follow through on our shared plans, realize the vision we created, and continue to address head on the difficult issues facing Golden, such as visitor impacts, traffic congestion, parking, development and growth.
I welcome your input on how to best address our shared challenges and look forward to learning about the issues that are most important to you.
