PRIORITIES and ISSUES
Police: With our city's fast growth comes the responsibility of maintaining our public safety services. In February, our police department will open a brand-new training facility where our officers will be able to accomplish all of their training in Thornton for the first time ever. This facility will also provide training for other departments in the years to come.
Fire: Amid our growing community and increasing needs, I am proud of my past work that ensured our Fire Department’s strategic plan proactively addresses the needs of our residents and businesses.
The Thornton Fire Department also continues to move forward with build-out for fire service response as the City expands and grows; opening Fire Station #7 next month and Fire Station #8 in 2025.
Economic Growth and Development
We have a strong business climate in Thornton and I will continue to work with our team to bring quality jobs and new businesses to our city. Finding key partners by leveraging our entrepreneurial talent and resources to help bring new opportunities to the city is how we make sure Thornton continues to be a great place to live, work and play.
I also know that Small Business Support is also a key to the economic health of Thornton and it continues to be a top priority including focusing on specific grants utilizing COVID funding to supplement our existing grant programs to help our small businesses thrive, while empowering new small businesses to launch their ideas and visions.
Strong schools make for strong cities! All families in Thornton deserve to know their leaders are working to ensure the best possible education for their kids. I know this because I expect that for my two kids. I also know this through my direct experience leading and serving as President of a local public charter school.
I will continue to ensure all Thornton families have an opportunity for a quality education.
