Arapahoe County is my home.
I’ve lived here all my life, and my husband and I have raised our three sons here. I am a school board member, a business owner, and a community leader. I have spent the last 20 years serving and volunteering to improve the lives of the people who call this place home.
I am running for county commissioner because the decisions we make today will have an impact on our quality of life for generations to come – and I have a history of working with the community to produce lasting solutions to our most pressing problems.
Arapahoe is one of the fastest growing counties in Colorado. While that growth means increased economic opportunity, it also presents a host of challenges: providing access to mental health care, expanding transportation infrastructure, and planning for future zoning, to name just a few.
The office of county commissioner calls for someone who will advance the best policies to protect and improve our way of life. Not just for the year ahead, but for the next 3, 5, and even 10 years.
As a two term school board member and a business owner, I understand how to plan for a changing future. I also know the importance of bringing a diversity of individuals and organizations into conversations about how to do it. Whether it’s joining forces with the state to expand mental health care locally, engaging stakeholders in the budgeting process, or providing for the livelihoods of my employees, I have demonstrated my commitment to making Arapahoe County work for everyone.
