Why are you the most qualified person for this office?

I have been a city council for the past 4 years and have gained all the experience that comes with it. I am familiar with how things work within the city and as a former small business owner, understand the economics of what goes on in to business and into the city.

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

Infrastructure. I would address it by advocating for new roads, and putting good use to newly generated tax revenue. We need to be active in finding ways for the city to find money to make improvements.

We are good at looking out for our citizens, and promoting growth within the city. We can improve on infrastructure and safety.
