I moved to Commerce City in December of 1983 with my wife and daughter and I’m proud to call this city my HOME. I am passionate about being the Mayor of Commerce City for the following reasons:
I truly love this city. When you love something or someone, your commitment doesn’t waver.
I’ve committed a significant amount of time and energy contributing to “a better Commerce City” for nearly 40 years. I have been instrumental in the following City improvements and I’m
proud of these accomplishments:
- Pioneer Park opening.
- Executed 5 projects in 5 years with the passing of the 2K citizen’s initiative.
- Paradice Island outdoor pool
- Bison Ridge Recreation Center
- Eagle Pointe Recreation Center improvements
- 3 new northern parks
- Widening Tower Road
- Started the Youth Commission.
- Started the Senior Commission.
- Built a new Quebec Parkway and widened Highway 2.
- I support a healthy balance of growth and development.
I am not a yes man and am not persuaded by special interest groups. I AM a strong collaborator and I promote collaboration to maximize the right outcomes for our city. A great example of this is the need to create a balanced plan with the developers and the citizens in the metro districts. The solution to these
challenges can only be accomplished by a strong leader who values cooperation and
collaboration. This same approach should be applied to work with non-profit organizations,
small and large businesses. I welcome diversity and productive perspectives.
There is no denying that Commerce City has a rich and diverse history. This City needs a strong leader such as me to bridge the current diversity gap to ensure that the needs of all residents are met. Furthermore, I appreciate different perspectives that lead to positive outcomes. I welcome productive feedback and hard
work, and I will lead by example. I believe that the combination of diversity and welcoming
different perspectives will increase our collective sense of community!
I value strong leadership and experience. My leadership style can be described as engaging, supportive, collaborative, knowledgeable and decisive. My experience and knowledge of the city, our residents, strengths and challenges come from many years of simply serving this community. I care about improving and expanding community resources for our citizens. Examples of this include, but are not limited to:
- Public Safety Resources and Technology for Police, Fire and EMS.
- Traffic and Transportation solutions.
- Bicycle and pedestrian walkways.
Conscientious growth in retail, restaurants, housing, and commercial segments. My goals are aligned with yours as I seek to create a sense of community, vibrant neighborhoods, and businesses, and a fiscally and socially responsible City Council. I am a servant leader as has been demonstrated in my 40 years of service to this community – I ask for your vote and would be honored to spend the next four years as the Mayor of Commerce City.
P.S. Please vote on November 7th!
(A). Additional attainable housing, retail, commercial and industrial development to ensure a robust tax base to fund all the important services the City provides to our citizens.
(B) Protecting citizens and the environment to the greatest extent the law will allow.
(C) Maximizing the overall transportation network throughout the entire City, including non-motorized transportation networks for bicycles and pedestrians.
Quality Community for a Lifetime means to me that it is a community where people want to live, recreate, educate, work, play and pray. It is a community where businesses want to locate, and developers want to build. A qualified and dedicated Mayor working cooperatively with a collaborative City Council and staff will make this a reality.
My favorite aspect of Commerce City is the people, the relationships, and the many friendships that I have developed throughout the community. I also love the proximity and relationship that we have with the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge and the Sand Creek Regional Greenway. These are hidden gems in Commerce City. Another favorite aspect that I love, is the Commerce City Historical Society, because they are preserving the rich history of the City, which is what every City should want to do in partnership and collaboration with the community.
