What is the most important issue facing Thornton and how would you propose addressing it?

The most important issue facing Thornton is smart planned growth  Because the city is half built out. Now is the time for smart planning.

What do you think the city does well and where do you see room for improvement?

What I like about the city is that we are a self contained city by providing Police, Fire, trash etc. The room for improvement would be diversity of housing, and better infrastructure.

What is your favorite thing about living in Thornton?

My favorite things about Thornton is the Parks, and the Thornton Fests that are held every year.
