Coffee Break?

Share a little time, have a little coffee and show your support for Doug’s candidacy by opening your home for a neighborhood meeting. The idea is to give Doug and the registered voters of Cherry Hills Village the chance to meet each other in a relaxed and informal setting. It is an opportunity for Doug to listen to voters directly, to learn first-hand what the issues are that concern Villagers. And, it is a way to learn more about Doug and his goals for the City Council..

Some questions for Doug

“What are your reasons for seeking office?” I want to serve. I want to engage in the continuing process of improving the quality of life in the Village. I want to contribute my time, skills and experience to help people enjoy and fulfill their lives. And I want to inspire my children to invest their energy in public service … to work for others, to work with others. “What do you value most about Cherry Hills Village?” Its people. Cherry Hills is a unique collection of talented, educated and dedicated leaders in Colorado. Wherever they are, Villagers are decision-makers, policy-makers, people who make a difference … and who contribute of themselves. We cherish the great tradition of charitable leadership and support demonstrated by the people of Cherry Hills. Villagers, more than in any other community in Colorado, are supportive of the needs of a civilized society, giving of their time and their resources to the infirm, the aged, the disadvantaged and those stricken with disease. It is an asset not to be dismissed or underappreciated. Our treasure is ourselves. “What is your view of the issues facing the Village over the next four years?” Our Homes: To establish cogent, clear and consistent standards to guide the boom in remodeling. New Development: To assist developers of new properties in enhancing the quality of life in the Village by building attractive additions to the Village that exhibit an appropriate sensitivity to their surroundings and neighbors. Cooperation: To incentivize cooperation among the Council, Village Staff and citizens–individually and through neighborhood associations–so that litigation never becomes the “only way left” for people to achieve legitimate goals. Technology: To be proactive in securing reliable and effective cell phone service throughout the Village by the use of state-of-the-art aesthetic “hidden” placements, and to establish broadband Internet connectivity at the earliest practical moment. Infrastructure: To facilitate, in cooperation with neighborhood associations, upgrading presently inadequate or non-inclusive infrastructure, whether unburied utilities or trails not accessible or friendly to all variety of uses by Villagers. “How can you contribute to the future of the Village?” Twenty-five years of advancing the cause of citizens interacting with federal, state, county and municipal government has helped me to understand both the needs of citizens and the rights and responsibilities of government. I have spent my life, from grade school on, participating on boards and in representative bodies in such a way as to represent well the constituencies I serve and to achieve consensus within the group whenever reasonably possible. Serving a decade on a hospital board has given me skills to work cooperatively and effectively with strongly opinionated professionals in an environment not always free from conflict. “What else would you like voters to know?” I first came to appreciate Cherry Hills Village in 1956 when I stayed with family friends who lived in Vista Road. At the ripe age of seven I determined that I would come back to live here with my family. Thirty-two years later I achieved my dream. Our four children have grown up here, maturing into contributing members of society, with advantages unknown to me as a youth. I will work to maintain this as a society and a Village where children can be raised and live in a secure and protected environment, learning how to become leaders and role models for others.

— Douglas M. Tisdale
