For Boulder City Council 2017

a new generation of commitment to Boulder’s legacy of stewardship.

 

I’m running for City Council because I care deeply about Boulder – the town I grew up in.

I represent a fresh perspective – as a younger candidate, a businesswoman, a Boulder native, and a volunteer firefighter who understands the plight of our emergency professionals who daily put their lives on the line for us. I am also a former resident of affordable housing who went on to buy a house in the city portion of Boulder’s Gunbarrel neighborhood with my husband.

I’ve had a life-long passion for politics, public service, and the political process. A highlight of my life was traveling to Washington, D.C. to meet with Colorado’s then-senators Mark Udall and Ben Nighthorse-Campbell, and subsequently watch one of their bills pass in the Senate.

I began considering a Boulder City Council bid some time ago. As I began to hear so many concerns from residents on issues, people started urging me to run. I heard concerns about the type of growth we’re seeing in Boulder, and the ever-increasing traffic. I also heard people’s struggles to afford to live in Boulder. I understand those challenges, having lived in affordable housing in Boulder myself, while saving up enough to eventually purchase a home here. The key point is that I believe we can create affordability, without ubiquitous high density and runaway growth.

I straddle many worlds that don’t often intersect in Boulder. This puts me in an excellent position to facilitate the elusive solutions our community really needs now. I know that with the talents, skills, and education of the people of Boulder, we can come up with more win-win solutions that work for all. Rather than settling for winners and losers, our wonderful city can do better by working together. If elected, I will work with people tirelessly to create win-wins.
