My Core Values
As your representative, I pledge to work on behalf of the interests and values of all Ward 5 constituents. My core values are predominantly shared throughout our community, but there may also be times when we must seek balance or compromise. I look forward to continuing Broomfield’s wonderful tradition of practical solutions for cooperative, pleasant living.
A safe community
Broomfield is one of the safest counties on the Front Range. The way the Broomfield Police department works with the community is a major factor in addressing theft and violent crime rates. Recently Broomfield Police visited neighborhoods in Ward 5 to let residents know that their garage doors were open and that there has been an increase in theft from open garages. This demonstrated a creative response to a neighborhood problem. As a member of city council I will ensure that the police department receives the resources to carry out a community oriented policing philosophy that reduces the rate of crime.
A key feature for residents of Ward 5 is the fact that there are many opportunities for enjoying the outdoors and getting physical activity. It is important to consider all ages when maintaining and building parks. It can be helpful for families of young children to have a playground that has a section built for ages 2-5 and another section for ages 6-12. It can also be helpful to plan for and include wheelchair access for parks and outdoor recreation areas.
It’s important that as Broomfield grows it has a high potential for economic prosperity for all who live, work, or visit our community. This doesn’t mean picking the winners or losers in a local economy but by allowing free enterprise and competition to increase the opportunities for prosperity. I will weigh the costs, benefits and impacts of every decision council makes so that economic prosperity won’t be hindered.
