Dear Thornton Residents,

I am excited to announce my candidacy for Mayor of Thornton. I know what you’re thinking…are you crazy? I may well be. For 5 years I’ve been your Ward 4 representative. For the last year I’ve also been your Mayor Pro Tem. Now, I’m asking to be your Mayor.

Your 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, doctors, day care professionals, small business owners, police officers, firefighters, teachers, and yes, oil & gas workers. Like the 100s of people in Ward 4 and 1,000s of people throughout Thornton, I am a proud oil & gas worker who works hard every day to safely develop a natural resource so important to our quality of life.

Support me respectfully, disagree with me respectfully, but remember that those of us in public service are still human beings with families that are your neighbors and friends. I welcome feedback, questions, concerns, and information. I also expect professionalism when having discussions, just like we teach our children. 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

Or as Bill and Ted said = “Be Excellent to Each Other”
