What do you value most about Cherry Hills Village:

-- Our beautiful open spaces, our unparalleled dedication to philanthropy for worthwhile causes, our attractive location in the very heart of the dynamic and vibrant Denver Metro Region and our active engagement in the economic vitality of the region – all of which continue to validate our ranking as The #1 Best Suburb of America to Live In!

Issues of concern during your next term in office:
-- Preservation and enhancement of our lifestyle, our surroundings, our economic health and our open space.
-- Relocation of our Public Works Department facility from the Village Center to the Denver Water Parcel immediately adjacent to the Village off of Quincy pursuant to negotiations I initiated with Denver Water CEO Jim Lochhead and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.

-- To listen to and to act upon all the needs and desires of every citizen of the Village.
-- To continue to protect and improve property values in the Village, as I did in having The Wall Street Journal publish a full page story in its Real Estate section last year.
