The job description for a County Commissioner is extensive, including Budgeting, Land Use & Planning, Public Safety, Human & Economic Health, Infrastructure, and much, much more. Our three Commissioners work closely with our seven other County Elected Officials to make sure that your County runs like a well-oiled machine.

Our Commissioners are tasked with managing over $486 million of your money, including both external and internal revenues. Over the past decade, I have a proven track record of working with the budgets of the Fort Collins Board of REALTORS, in 6+ years on their Board of Directors, and of a couple of Homeowner’s Associations for well over a decade, to ensure their solvency for the future.  I have the financial foresight to administer your money wisely.

Another role of the Board of County Commissioners is to be the final decision maker pertaining to Land Use Issues. Through my combined 11 years as a volunteer on both the Larimer County Planning Commission (I’m the current Chair) and the Red Feather Lakes Planning Area Committee, I have worked on new codes, regulations, as well as our monthly hearings on Land Use Applications.  We have also adopted many new County Master Plans, including Transportation, Fairgrounds, Parks, Open Lands, and the Mountain Resiliency Plan, which is the first of two steps towards a new Comprehensive County Master Plan.

I would encourage you to go to the County Website to watch past Planning Commission Hearings, to get an idea of what we do: http://legacy.larimer.org/news/video/

With fourteen years of leadership roles at both the Local and State REALTOR Associations combined with the practiced negotiation skills I have refined during my years in Real Estate, I am fully prepared to work with our County Staff and Elected Officials to continue Larimer County’s trek to excellence.  This is a critical role of the County Commissioners as working in harmony with all of the departments of Larimer County government is essential to our success.

I have spent thousands of hours, over 9 years, studying the duties of being a Larimer County Commissioner. I have the skills, knowledge, and experience to perform the job.  My volunteering and working experiences have prepared me well for this job. I am ready to put my financial knowledge, my ability to mediate, and my leadership skills to work for you as your next Larimer County Commissioner for District 1!

Larimer County is a spectacular place to live, work, and play.  I am proud to be a citizen here.  More importantly, I am honored that you support my campaign to serve as your next Larimer County Commissioner.
