Get to Know Your Council Member
I currently work for an environmental non-profit on energy policy.
In the coming year I’m interested in working with my colleagues to:
- Keep our infrastructure projects on track and on budget
- Mitigate city and resident impacts of climate change
- Enhance public safety via the Homelessness Community Task Force and new traffic calming policy.
Incumbent Questions - June 2022
The action I’m the most proud of is the work the city has taken on to address our poor air quality. This includes the creation of an electric vehicle readiness plan, joining a solar co-op, designing a net-zero city hall (this means the building will be highly energy-efficient and will create as much energy as it uses – good for our budget, the environment and our air quality) and potentially hiring our first sustainability coordinator in 2023 (pending City Council approval)!
I’ve learned that the best policy decisions are made when everyone’s voices are included. Additionally, I’ve learned how much goes into running a city – from water, to trash, planning, public safety, roads, buildings, programming, events, parks, communications – the list goes on. We are lucky to have such awesome, dedicated and hardworking staff!
The biggest issues that Northglenn faces right now are roadway and pedestrian safety, poor air quality, the opioid epidemic and inflation.
The most rewarding part of being on council is being able to work directly with residents in order to solve problems and improve our quality of life.
