Dear Neighbors,

I am excited about my candidacy for Mayor of Thornton. Over the last 5 years it has been a privilege to serve as a Ward 4 Councilmember. Since early 2018, I’ve also had the honor to serve all of Thornton as Mayor Pro Tem. Now, I am asking to be your Mayor.

Our City Council is made up of the most passionate and dedicated individuals that fight every day for our residents. But I see a crisis in the lack of ability for a small but vocal minority of those outside our council to disagree with us and each other in a manner that is constructive and that leads to improvement of our City.

It’s time to bring civility back to civil service.

Our City is an amazing place of people with diverse backgrounds: construction workers, office workers, healthcare professionals, childcare providers, small business owners, police officers, firefighters, teachers and many industry workers. Like the 100s of people in Ward 4 and 1,000s of people throughout Thornton, I am a proud of my profession. Being an engineer, I work hard every day to support safe development of our natural resources that are vital to our quality of life.

My promise is to continue to always be honest and open about my positions and to continue to maintain civility in my discussions. I challenge everyone to do the same.


As always, if you have any questions about my campaign, please reach out to me at

Let’s get to work! #ThorntonProud #Jan4Mayor


Civility, Courage, Compassion, Character
