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

Seek to understand.

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

I have the dynamic communication and leadership skills honed through growing a local business, as a founding board member of the Westminster Chamber of Commerce, as Colorado President of my professional association and through appointments to local and state boards and commissions. Our Mayor is the primary spokesperson for our city and must be an outstanding communicator. Personality and how you treat people matters and what you say and how you say it does matter!

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

1. We must work to not leave our traditional neighborhoods behind. Public spending must first address neglected parts of our city then be balanced in the future.2. Public Safety is key to our trust in our city and our Police and Fire Departments must be given the manpower and tools that they require to protect us.3. We have plans in place for our city especially at the former Westminster Mall site but we must deliver a sustainable plan that benefits the taxpayers and the local businesses that will occupy the retail and office spaces.

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

First, we need to foster the development and success of the small businesses that are currently in our City. Second, we owe it to the tax payers to deliver a smart and sustainable development of the old Westminster Mall site. The citizens deserve a project that is not only beautiful, but contributes to City as a whole.

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

Westminster is a great place to live and raise a family. The diversity of our residents helps make us a vibrant and balanced city. Communication and delivering the focus that citizens can unite behind is what builds communities and make us stronger as a whole.
