I'm excited to support Broomfield's next mayor, Randy Ahrens. Randy is the real deal and offers everything Broomfield should look for in a strong community leader: Deep family and local roots, wide experience and service, a positive vision and the skills and personality to lead the city forward.
I've known Randy many years and watched him play a leading role on City Council and as mayor pro tem, as Broomfield grew into a dynamic economic center at the same time it preserved its desirable atmosphere and quality of life. Randy's leadership was key to that healthy development. Randy was a driving force for such enrichments as open space, dog parks and other family friendly venues in Broomfield.
He has a detailed plan to guide the city toward improved transportation, plenty of green and open space and a thriving economic base.
Randy's extensive experience in local and regional government is complemented by a strong business sense and vision to help jobs and opportunity flourish here. His years of leadership in the Chamber of Commerce give him a well informed sense of the challenges that employers and service providers face in adding value to their community.
Randy offers Broomfield a well-seasoned, liked and respected leader who's been serving our community for years. There are lots of kinds of politicians. Some have a few attractive ideas, but lack common sense or knowledge of the big picture. Others give a nice speech, but lack organization and follow through. Still others rely excessively on special interests and groups with narrow agendas. Randy Ahrens pulls together all the skills and experience necessary to help steer our town in a healthy, livable direction.
I'm voting for Randy Ahrens.
