My family and I love to hang out with each other, our friends and our community. We play board games, garden, participate in sports, hike, bike and explore the great outdoors of Colorado.
Philosophy of Local Government
Much like my philosophy in health, local government (Broomfield in particular) has more working than not. When we focus on what is working, we create small and sometimes great successes that help build upon those areas that have not quite measured up. It is important to give attention to the pathology but not at the expense of the overall picture.
For the most part, (Broomfield) residents typically want the same thing: safe and relatively quiet neighborhoods and roads, we also want clean air, soil and water and enough of these resources to support our growth. Other things include quality jobs and educational institutions, community connections and a place where we can mingle and support a downtown thereby generating revenue and community. When we (city council and residents) come together to share our ideas, we do so with the good of all in mind. Building our homes and families is a practice and a process; it takes careful planning, hard work, collaboration, patience, nurturing, fun and determination (to name a few), which in my opinion is just what it takes to build a successful local government. When we bring each other up and hold each other accountable, we not only adhere to and practice "the Broomfield way", but we also honor the heart of Broomfield.
