1.) Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Fearless, researched, challenging

2.) Describe the skills and experience that make you the best candidate for the job.

I care about the success of Westminster's citizens and neighborhoods, both short and long term, and I have the thoughtfulness to make choices that will support our people and neighborhoods. The current Mayor and Council use the City to help their friends, they do not care about the citizens.

3.) Please list your top three priorities if elected.

1-End changing the Comprehensive plan to jam more high density rental housing into Westminster. 2-Stop the city from being used to make connected insiders more money. 3-End the wasteful use of 'consultants' that add no value to our projects.

4.) How do you see Westminster best taking advantage of the economic boom in Metropolitan Denver?

Having a consistent, understandable, predictable, speedy process where proposed projects are approved.

5.) Explain your opinion regarding the city's role in promoting or reacting to ethnic and linguistic diversity?

Westminster has a duty to provide open, competent, equal government to everyone that lives here. We must provide a safe, protected, secure space for our citizens. We help ourselves when we are open to the differences our citizens have in life story, ethnicity, religion, ideology, politics and orientation. However, we will hurt ourselves if do not embrace everyone, regardless of difference, as an important, valuable and NECESSARY part of the whole.
