I am running for re-election for City Council because there are so many positive things happening in Longmont right now that I want to see continued. Longmont is moving in the right direction. We are recovering from a huge flood with an improved river corridor and new nature areas. Our economy is thriving. We have added hundreds of jobs and the employment rate is at an unprecedented low. Spending is up and the resulting sales tax revenues are allowing us to direct funding to affordable housing. We need to continue on this trajectory to make sure Longmont is the best place to live on the Front Range, now and in the years to come.
