Berthoud Mayor 2018

Berthoud is an incorporated town governed by a Mayor and Board of Trustees. Trustees meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall, 328 Massachusetts Ave. Mayor and Trustees are elected at-large to staggered four-year terms. Elections are held on the first Tuesday following the first Monday of April in even-numbered years. The election on April 3, 2018 will be a mail ballot election. There are two mayoral candidates for a 2-year term. Because the current Mayor was elected in 2016 to fill a vacancy that was created following the 2016 election, the Town determined that this election must be for a 2-year term to comply with the Colorado Municipal Election Code.

I am a native of Berthoud. After graduating from Berthoud High School I attended Colorado State University and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor's in Communication Studies. I am currently pursing a Master's in public administration full-time. I am running because I am passionate about this town.
Yes. I believe the previous ballot measure did a fine job of identifying the need of a mental health facility. I believe the failure of the measure was due to communicating this need. Going forward it will be important to highlight that this facility will reduce the amount of habitual offenders.
Absolutely. This partnership has allowed a skilled law enforcement presence that Berthoud would not be able to afford on its own. The Sheriff's deputies have done a remarkable job of showing that they are members of the community and want to improve upon it.
Berthoud really needs to re-commit ourselves to master planning. Through this process we can start to look at the whole picture and start saving instead of focusing on short-term fixes. It is also paramount that we work with the Metropolitan Planning Organization and convey our needs.
Improve communication between the board, committees, staff and the public.

Focus on improving maintenance schedule on existing infrastructure. This will help to build public trust.

Increase our focus on the I-25 region to ensure that it will be a financial and aesthetic benefit to Berthoud.
My focus will be on bridge-building and collaboration between governments and organizations. This will require not only my attendance at day time regional meetings, but also that I convey my sincere desire to work with others to make Berthoud a better place to live.
