Public Safety

Today, Colorado Springs has some of the highest homicide and auto theft rates in our history. I am dedicated to prioritizing our budget so that police and firefighters have the resources they need to keep our community safe. I will also advocate for policies that hold criminals responsible. This is personal for me. I have raised two daughters in Colorado Springs and have two granddaughters here. I want this to be a place that they want to work, live, and raise their children. We do not want to see Colorado Springs turn into other large cities, such as Denver, where homelessness and lawlessness drive out residents and businesses.  



Maintaining infrastructure is a critical component of quality of life and service to our residents. As we grow, we need to do so wisely, ensuring roads, drainage, and utility infrastructure are appropriately maintained and expanded to meet demand. In addition, we must preserve our beloved parks, a hallmark of Colorado Springs, that provide experiences in the beautiful outdoors that attract many families to our city. Partnerships with organizations like Trails, Open Space, and Parks (TOPS) and Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority are critical to achieving those goals. 


Family finances are strained under the weight of inflation and businesses struggle under expensive government policies. We can drive down costs, keep taxes low, and encourage a thriving economy in Colorado Springs by getting government out of the way. A healthy economy, driven by our resilient residents means a better quality of life for us all. I am committed to a low tax burden for our citizens and businesses and a  low-regulation environment that allows for economic growth. A healthy economy is essential to providing good jobs for residents and attracting businesses that provide services and products that residents want. The way to get there is to allow market forces to drive our economy, respect private property rights, and guide smart growth. According to the Home COS Plan, more than 3,000 people per year move into the Pikes Peak region. This will require robust conversations and collaboration with stakeholders and is important especially when drafting plans and city codes such as PlanCOS, RetoolCOS, and Colorado Springs Utilities plans and processes.
