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

Lead by Example

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

As a service-driven person, I am focused on progressing and improving Westminster for all residents. My empathy for human issues and my drive to serve is why I will lead Westminster forward.

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

Plan. The growth of the city has been rapid and will continue. We have to be envision Westminster in the long term to accommodate growth, protect our environment and strengthen quality of life.Connect. As the metro area grows together, it is more important than ever to have connectors and team players in office, working across municipal, county and district lines to solve problems.Include. Westminster's incredible quality of life must extend to all residents. To do that, we must not only be open to diversity, but celebrate diversity.

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

I believe that Westminster has to use a smart growth approach in this economic boom. We have to build our tax base for the future of our city; but, not every piece of raw land has to be developed now. Furthermore, every development has to be the right kind of development for each community and area, so that it increases quality of life and opportunity. But, the most important piece in managing the boom, is to accommodate growth with investments in our infrastructure, keeping Westminster a sustainable city for generations to come.

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

Westminster has put in place a model for how to promote a municipality in the metro area. Our current vision is forward thinking and leads us to be both an economically strong and inclusive city. Our job on council is to be stewards of the city; and, to build our community. We cannot call ourselves a true community, if we are not fostering inclusion and promoting all diversity.
