- I was born and raised in Broomfield.
- My husband and I have raised our family here, living in the same house for almost 25 years.
- We have owned and operated our own successful business in Broomfield for 20 years.
- My family has owned and leased commercial buildings here for almost 65 years, since before Broomfield was a city.
- I am called to joyously serve my neighbors in my beloved hometown. It's who I want to be.
- Regardless of whether or not I'm re-elected, that's who I am, and that's what I'm going to do.
