Q&A With Council Member Witkovich

Get to Know Your Council Member

How Long Have You Lived in Northglenn?
My husband and I have lived in Northglenn since 2014, when we bought our first home.
What Neighborhood/Area Do You Live In?
We live on Larry Drive near Larson Park. This area is sometimes referred to as the Leroy Neighborhood. 
What Do You Like Most About Northglenn?
I love the small-town feel of Northglenn despite being a large and growing metropolitan area. I also love our parks, our homes and most of all, our people.
What is Your Education and Career Experience?
I earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Central Florida in 2006. I earned a master’s degree in political science from the University of Colorado-Denver in 2015. 
Tell Us About Your Family
I have been married to my best friend, Brandon, for 11 years. We have four dogs that keep us busy and entertained - Emmy, Hodor, Ollie and Bayley. 
How Have You Gotten Involved in the Community?
I have enjoyed volunteering with the CIty since moving to Northglenn in 2014. I am a Snow Stormer, a CPAAAN member, Chair of the Northglenn VALE Board, and a neighborhood beautification judge in the summer.  I also enjoy volunteering at our big community events each summer.
Why Did You Run for Office?
I became interested in local government and community development while going through graduate school. I have greatly enjoyed my volunteer experiences with the city, and City Council was a logical next step for me to expand my volunteerism in the community while also utilizing my education. 
What Community Issues Are You Most Interested in Addressing?
I am most interested in any issues involving the safety of our neighborhoods, our streets and our residents. These are the issues most important to my neighbors. 
What Regional Issues Are You Most Interested in Addressing?
Northglenn is involved in many regional issues due to our location in a large metropolitan area, but the issue I am most interested in involves homelessness. This is a concern for residents so it should also be a concern for City Council. 
What Community and Regional Issues Are You Most Interested in Addressing?
Now that we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, my focus has changed dramatically. First and foremost, community health and safety is my priority. Second, our businesses both small and large will need assistance to survive. Beyond that, we must continue to work with our partners to open the N Line commuter rail.
