Thornton Council Ward 2

Posted

Julia Marvin

10305 Gaylord St., Thornton

Background: My husband and I chose Thornton because we wanted to plant our roots somewhere with a strong sense of community. I'm a graduate of CU Boulder and have spent the past 10 years working in public relations and community outreach. I'm running because we need new leadership with fresh ideas who will represent the community. Together, we can build a better Thornton, where we all love to live, work and play.

Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Collaborative, accessible, problem-solver

Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job.

Thanks to my time serving on City Committees and work helping people become more engaged in the political process, I understand how local government works. I'm passionate about serving my community, committed to seeking new ideas and perspectives and won't take no for an answer. My ten-years-plus experience in marketing and community outreach in the private and public sectors gives me a unique perspective on how to solve problems, encourage innovation, and create progress.

Please list your top three priorities if elected.

Neighborhoods are the heart of Thornton. We must prioritize affordable, balanced housing and safe neighborhoods to maintain and improve. It's critical to support growth in ways that benefit everyone, not just a few.

We must ensure that transportation services meet the needs of our community and grows with us. This includes public transportation, walkable neighborhoods, street repairs and traffic congestion.

I'm committed to making local government accessible to everyone through increased transparency, engagement and communication.

Discuss economic growth in your community. How can you balance economic opportunity with current residents' desire to preserve their way of life?

Thornton, like all of Colorado is growing quickly. It's critical that we're making decisions that are forward-thinking, inclusive, and based on the needs of the community. We all deserve more opportunities to earn a good life that allows us to support our families. We can do that by supporting the development and growth of small businesses and entrepreneurs, developing a skilled and educated workforce, and attracting employers that offer quality, well-compensated jobs.

Would you put limits or regulations on oil and gas developments in the city, or is that something best left to the county, the state or someone else?

We need to prioritize the health and safety of our citizens by looking at oil and gas developments through the lens of minimizing impacts. Putting large oil and gas operations next to our schools and neighborhoods is not in the best interest of the public. City Council should exercise authority on this issue and make decisions on setback provisions, zoning, air-quality, noise, insurance mandates, and inspection and enforcement to create stricter and safer conditions.

Background: I know people because I have had a lot of years of working with people. As a council woman I really would like to bring empowerment to the people. I would like to welcome new businesses to Thornton. I would like to have more attainable housing for young couples starting out giving them an investment. I want Thornton to be a community involved for everyone who wants to.

Keep apartment living to a minimum and develop attainable condos or townhouses as investments for residents. This will increase property value and I believe this will also keep residents working and living in Thornton

We need safety but not impossible.
