Last night was the Candidates Forum for the Town Board of Windsor hosted by the Chamber of Commerce at the Windsor Community Recreation Center. After the candidates introduced themselves and explained why they are running, the candidates were asked multiple questions on major issues facing Windsor such as water, growth, acclimating the new Town Manager to Windsor, and the culture of this town. The candidates had a chance for final words and a meet and greet with the public.
My take away: Windsor will be in good hands no matter who is elected. I was truly inspired and overwhelmed with the candidates. Everyone has a huge heart for this Town, is very knowledgeable about the Town’s issues, and all want to do what’s best for the Town moving forward. Windsor is incredibly blessed.
I’m excited for the election in just under two weeks as the residents make the difficult decision of who they want to represent them. An offer was made for the new Town Manager as well, a position that has been vacant since late last year. A lot of excitement ahead for this amazing community and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
When I tell people I’m running for Windsor’s Town Board, I often get a quizzical look.
Well, I’ll tell you why.
First and foremost, it’s about giving back. I’ve been so very blessed in my life, and I feel giving of my time, effort, and energy to the Town of Windsor would be something I could do to help others and continue to support such an amazing community I live in.
When we moved here almost three years ago, I knew almost immediately that this was a special place. Something inside of me wanted to do something to show my appreciation and gratitude. However, I had no idea how to begin (can we say Google 🙂 ). Soon, I discovered the volunteer boards of the Town of Windsor and quickly signed on. I have served on the Parks, Recreation & Culture Advisory Board here in Windsor and currently serve on the Board of Adjustment/Appeals. These are wonderful places to learn more about our Town and great service opportunities.
Second, I think Windsor has done a great job in managing growth. With my finance background, I see my role as ensuring Windsor grows fiscally responsibly and in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan. My priorities include keeping the small-town feel and community of Windsor as we grow into one of the most desired and affordable places to live in Northern Colorado. My door will always be open to my constituents and what they think and feel regarding Windsor’s policies moving forward. Fostering community events, managing traffic and construction concerns, promoting more affordable housing and business growth, and maintaining quality education and amenities are my top priorities.
Third and finally, the time is right. My kids are older and I have more of myself to give to others. I’m eager to help, eager to serve, eager to listen, eager to make a difference in my community.
So here I am!!! With the answer to your question.
I’m super excited for this opportunity and possibility of making a difference in others’ lives. Please feel free to email me or comment below with anything on your mind!
