I am a trusted public servant with 8 years service on Pueblo City Council, elected President five times by my peers. Presently, I serve on the Water Board, having been appointed by 6 of 7 sitting councilors. I also have 40+ years of executive leadership, leading area non-profits.
As mentioned, I presently serve as a member of the Water Board. Under my leadership, City Council worked in conjunction with the Water Board on many ocassions - including annexation projects and Lake Minnequa improvements. I have completed water tours of the Upper Arkansas Valley to better understand how Pueblo accesses the water of our region. Since being appointed to the Water Board, I have been engaged in sharing these learnings and regularly make myself available for constituent concerns and questions.
The Water Board is concerned with keeping the water we already have, growing our holdings, and expanding our reserve capacity

We are addressing these issues through maintaining the water in the Arkansas Basin, negotiating the purchase of additional water shares, and supporting an expansion of Clear Lake and Pueblo reservoirs.
The Water Board has operated well for decades, since Pueblo's two water entities were combined in the 1950's. The staff has always maintained a high level of professionalism and I would not recommend changes at this time.
