What makes you the best choice for this office?

I'm a fair and honest person and enjoy helping people. I love Castle Rock, and when I believe in something, my work ethic is unmatched! I will listen to the residents and try to be the voice of District 1.

If you're elected, what one single issue will be at the top of your agenda? 

To bring a Whataburger here! LOL! Seriously, I would like a Whataburger restaurant, but I would love to have an athletic complex. This complex would have enough fields to host national tournaments. It also could have activities such as indoor tennis and basketball courts. I believe it would generate tax dollars to our town and boost local business. It would be a great venue for residents to practice, host games, and exercise as well. Of course, if we do build an athletic complex, we need enough hotel rooms to support visitors.

If you're elected, what must you accomplish in order for you to consider your term a success? 

If the residents of Castle Rock feel that I was transparent, responsive to their questions and concerns about town issues, and helped keep Castle Rock on a positive path, I would call that an achievement!

If elected, how would you continue work to help small local businesses recover from COVID-19? 

I will help small local business owners by not only listening to their needs but to also ensure they are connected to all resources (national, state and local) that are available. I will partner with the Chamber of Commerce to encourage local spending. Finally, I will meet with the town manager and town boards to find temporary and permanent business solutions to pave the pathway for local business success.

What do you believe is the best way for Castle Rock to manage growth and development in coming years? 

The housing market and available retail space should dictate the pace of new construction. We all want retail spaces to be full and home prices to stay high. Moving forward, it is important to create dependable revenue sources that allow us to continually provide the quality services our town is known for and enjoys today. Ensuring we keep Castle Rock's aesthetic within new construction is very important to the people of our town. Balancing open space amongst structures and incorporating Colorado's identity is key.
