Lauren for Mayor: Arvada's voice for you!
It's Time for Something New
I believe in the power of community. That’s why I will be a Mayor IN the community.
I not only intend to keep Arvada a place where I want to raise my daughter, but also a place where my daughter will want to raise her daughter.
The problem with politics is that everyone thinks in election cycle terms. My goal is to help change that locally. Arvada doesn’t need to be thinking in four-year terms. We need to be thinking in forty-year terms. Our future is built today by the investments we make in ourselves.
I am running for Mayor because there are issues where we simply can’t afford to wait. Climate resiliency, disaster preparedness, and the housing affordability crisis are all acute problems we must deal with NOW. But we need to do it right. With science and data, guided by values, Arvada will be the best place to live, work and play both now and into the future.
There are two major lines of thought when it comes to elected leadership: Those that think the voters elected them to make decisions based on their own judgements and beliefs. And those that know that the voters elected them to listen and to represent the people’s will. I am very much in that latter camp, and I have the voting record to prove it.
