I grew up in the Denver Metro Area, graduated from Lakewood High School, graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in Pharmacy and a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Infantry. After the Army I spent over three decades as a Retail Pharmacist. I'm married, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I served on City Council from 2013 to 2017. I have shared my views on the path to better government widely; in several opinion articles, a research paper and many letters to the editor in local papers. I consider candidates that refuse to give specific, detailed answers to questions about what they want of accomplish as typical politicians, unhelpful to voters and demeaning to the election process. Good Government needs openness and transparency, especially in the consideration process. Thru my actions I have worked toward that end.
Elect Bruce Baker to Westminster City Council
I will keep Westminster green by voting to lower the water rates so we can afford to water our landscapes
I will keep Westminster less crowded by honoring the intent of our Open Space Tax and Comprehensive Plan and not increasing housing densities.
I will keep Westminster a good place to live by refocusing the attention of Council on the people that live here TODAY instead of wasting millions of dollars on becoming "the next urban center of the Colorado Front Range.
I will end the ridiculous use of 'consultants' for jobs that should be done by city staff.
The members of City Council should be the stewards of city assets and should use those assets to allow the people of Westminster make their homes, neighborhoods and businesses attractive, inviting places.
The harmful choice that council has made, like the excessive water rates or jamming in thousands of apartments, will harm our homes, neighborhoods and businesses.
When I served on council from 2013 to 2017, I fought for the needs of the people of Westminster and thrifty, smart, efficient, responsive government. I have the passion, experience and knowledge to reverse the harmful choices that have been made by council. It is time we return the mission of council to serving the people rather than the ridiculous fantasies and corrupt deals that are wasting our tax dollars.
