My vision for Lakewood is one of community. Where people come together regardless of what end of the political, religious, or social spectrum they identify with. Where we all value our land, our families, and each other. Where we have the best police, schools, and health in the state.

As a City Councilwoman, I’ll do my best to be an ally for all residents of Ward One. I’ll listen, and make decisions based on what the community wants, rather than the wants of vested interests or my own opinions.

I’m already working, and will continue to work on making the Sustainable Neighborhood Program even more effective. Making sustainability in Lakewood a priority gives future generations the gift that we’ve been so freely given, living in such close proximity to nature.

I’ll choose responsible development, rather than jumping the gun on building and expansion. Lakewood is growing, and we need a council who understands how to demand responsible and sustainable efforts from developers.

I know how important it is for our elected government workers to truly listen to the people they represent. This is often overlooked, and I’d like to change the paradigm back. As City Councilwoman, I look forward to being your ally, and someone you can always count on to listen to your concerns and needs, and also to share in your successes.

When I’m elected, I will listen with presence and act with wisdom, both my own, and borrowed. I’ll help empower neighbors and friends to connect more deeply and in more meaningful ways. Together, we can build the community that we so deeply want and need. And I will advocate for keeping Lakewood’s rich culture intact, even in the face of change.

I couldn’t do this without each and every one of you. As cliché as this may sound, it is my belief that if we work together, we can accomplish anything.
