Why do you want to serve on the Centennial City Council?
I want to serve on the Centennial City Council to give back to my community, to continue and preserve our city’s quality of life, and to be part of planning our future.
What would your approach be to managing growth and development in the city?
If elected, I would collaborate with other councilmembers to create a policy of sustainable economic expansion in the service and retail industries, work with our business community to identify their needs for city services as well as work with developers to build out our commercial real estate, helping our city attract new businesses while retaining existing ones.
Amid rising housing prices, what can city council do to ensure young families are not priced out of the city?
City council can ensure our zoning is structured for, and our residential developers are encouraged to build, multi-family homes and mixed-use projects so that we can have an attainable housing in Centennial.
What can city council to do improve traffic flow in Centennial?
City council can work with our partners CDOT and RTD and neighboring municipalities to plan for increased traffic and incorporate Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) into our capital improvements.
What two issues need more attention than the current city council has given them?
I believe that past councils and current city council have done a great job in forming the city, shoring up our finances and improving our city’s infrastructure. I believe we must pay more attention 1) to improving the efficiency of our municipal services so as to be more responsive to our citizens, and 2) move beyond day-to-day operations and strategic planning to develop a bold long-term plan and vision for the city.
