Issues

Quality of life


Jeffco is the Gateway to the Rockies, and we’re fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful locations in the country.

Thriving economy and workforce


Jeffco’s economic health is a top priority for me. Some of the country’s most innovative companies are located here.

Safe communities


Whether you’re a parent or a senior citizen, we all want to be safe and secure in our homes and in our neighborhoods.

Balanced growth


Many of us live in Jeffco because we enjoy what it offers – from hiking trails to energetic downtowns to sweeping Rocky Mountain views.

Strong fiscal oversight and transparency


We all want a strong return on taxpayers’ investment. This requires leadership that’s thoughtful and strategic about how we leverage every taxpayer dollar.

Listening to our community


Engaging our citizens to identify priorities and inform decision-making is a core value of mine.

Open space, environmental stewardship


In Jeffco, we have more than 230 miles of trails and nearly 30 regional parks – more than 50,000 acres are devoted to open space.

Quality, attainable housing


As more people move to Colorado, we have seen an increase in the demand for quality housing that’s also affordable.

Transportation


No one likes to sit in bumper-to- bumper traffic. Whether you commute to the office by car, bike, light rail, or bus, it’s important to have lots of transportation options across Jeffco.

Supporting our seniors and helping our veterans


In Jeffco, the number of people age 60 or older will double in the next 20 years. What’s more, 40 percent of the county’s workforce is eligible to retire in the next decade.

Giving kids a strong start


Jeffco has great schools with a high school graduation rate that’s above the national average. We also have a highly educated workforce.

Libraries


In Jeffco, we value our nationally recognized public libraries. Our library system is a community asset for every generation.
