Dedication, Management, Leadership and Integrity
I recognize the importance of Centennial’s law enforcement/Arapahoe County’s Sheriff’s department because of my back story and because I am a wife and mother that wants her family to be safe; I want our city to remain safe. I will continue to support law enforcement to maintain our city’s top-ranking as one of the safest cities in Colorado and the nation.
Traffic and Roads:
Continue our plan with being innovative with traffic signals and signage “smart city”. Expanding the number of lanes that would allow drivers to exit into the turning lane without backing-up or stopping would also help with traffic flow. Working with RTD and making sure the infrastructure can support public transportation as people travel to work, school and to play. Additionally, a lot of residents are active and bikers so making sure bike lanes, sidewalks and crosswalks are properly located and safe and ADA compliant.
Smart Growth and Development:
My approach would be to continue to set business practices that will continue to make doing business in Centennial easier. However, I would also work with the businesses to assure they have the City of Centennial’s and its residents best interest in mind when they want to enter the city.
Although, retail is changing and people make purchases online; our city’s revenues come from retail sales taxes. We want the experiences, dining out and shopping. Unfortunately, residents in district 4 get most of those experiences in our sister cities. I want our spending power to benefit Centennial, so we can improve our roads and maintain our city. This starts with developing, building and keeping the businesses within Centennial and giving our people more access to the things we all enjoy.
We need to preserve our racial, social and economic diversity by having housing prices that accommodate middle income families. I will stand up for tenant rights and work with other council members for ways we can work with developers for a variety housing options, so we can remain a sustainable community.
Water Quality and Flooding:
Our residents have a real concern regarding flooding. Specifically, in district 4’s Piney Creek, as well as, the area off Parker and Arapahoe Roads. I‘ll work with South East Metro Water Authority regarding this issue.
