I will continue to work hard to preserve the character and quality of life in Boulder County, and will contribute my core values of cooperation, empathy, compassion and inclusion. I will continue developing productive and impactful human services initiatives such as the Boulder County Family Resource Network and Communities That Care, Communities That Care – a program that creates long-term strategies for youth substance abuse programs, and addresses the underlying problems affecting the young people in our County.
I bring together different perspectives and approaches by including a diverse set of voices who can contribute their ideas, insights and solutions to community challenges such as immigration, early childhood education, public health, youth programs, environmental stewardship, arts and culture. I have promoted an environment of cooperation; reaching out and building bridges among the many business, government and non-profit organizations that serve the East Boulder County population.
I plan to launch a listening tour, to listen to about what the people of Boulder County want.
