Thornton is growing fast. While this brings excitement, economic benefits, and extra conveniences for us all, it also brings potential negative side effects if the process isn’t handled the right way. Making sure we build our community responsibly and TOGETHER is the reason I want to continue to serve on City Council. For any City to grow responsibly, we need to make certain to include those who live in that community before making critical decisions. This is crucial. My promise to you is that I will always make sure your voices and concerns are heard before any decisions are made. It’s my job to listen to my constituents, and I will never stray from it. No doubt that there is a lot of work ahead as our community grows, but I know we will find success so long as we respect each other and work together to ensure we enhance the quality of life for all of our families.
Strengthen Our Local Economy
A strong and healthy local economy enhances the lives of all who live in that community.
It provides opportunities for us to work where we live, generates needed tax revenues used to support and improve our community services, and it provides us with opportunities to play and shop right here in Thornton. New retail opportunities, new primary employers, and new restaurants along the I25 corridor of our community are providing these opportunities for us and our families.
While we are headed in the right direction now, there are still many more opportunities to continue to strengthen our local economy. My years of experience in economic development will help ensure this is also done responsibly with full understanding of the potential impacts to our community. I promise to seek out and listen to all opinions as we continue to grow and to be transparent on my decisions.
Working together to strengthen our local economy.
Keep Crime Low and Our Community Safe
I’m proud to support the brave law enforcement professionals and first responders who put their lives on the line every day for our families. Thornton is fortunate to have first-class police and fire departments. These professionals have made our community one of the safest in the state and we should be proud of that.
Recently, City Council hired a new Police Chief to lead the department after a nationwide search. I promise to work closely with the chief to ensure any community concern related to policing are communicated. Then the goal will be to work to address these concerns so that our community continues to trust and respect our police officers.
I am also committed to ensuring our police officers and fire fighters have all the resources necessary to ensure their safety, that response times remain low, needed community outreach continues, and residents feel safe in their homes or at our parks and other public places.

Manage Your Tax Dollars and the Budget Wisely
We live in a time where many of our neighbors are struggling. Now more than ever, we need elected officials who understand this and who will work to ensure our City spends tax dollars wisely. As a single mom, I know what it’s like to struggle financially and I promise I will continue to make certain Thornton spends our tax revenue appropriately. My goal for the budget is to make sure City Council is effectively planning for not only today but for the future.

Improve Our Roads and Transportation
As Thornton grows, so does the need for new and expanded roads. I will continue to listen to residents and will advocate for necessary road expansions, road fixes, and if required new roads.
I will also strongly advocate for our community to state officials and make sure we see the continued improvements on I25 we deserve. Now that we finally got the light rail in Thornton after many delays, I will work with RTD to ensure it continues to operate efficiently and serve our community effectively.
