Paid for by Candace Moon for Centennial

I am proud to endorse Council Member Candace Moon as the best candidate for Centennial City Council District 1. She is a self starting, multi-talented, achiever.  I have found that she possesses the integrity, work ethic and "common sense" approach, coupled with a great degree of background knowledge in Colorado and Centennial issues necessary to serve District 1 successfully. Candace is knowledgeable, concerned, and caring in everything she undertakes. Her knowledge and understanding of state issues have been honed as a parent and from activism state-wide, district-wide and at the local level.  Again, Candace is the best qualified candidate.

Working with the Centennial Youth Commission, spearheading the establishment of a Centennial Value Statement, or working to prevent teen suicide, Candace has demonstrated her abilities and desire to accomplish the hard jobs.  With her demonstrated willingness to serve and excellent perceptiveness, Mrs. Moon is the kind of person needed to keep the City moving forward and keeping our taxes the lowest in this region while maintaining a balanced budget with no debt. All of this has been accomplished while increasing services to our citizens such as snow removal, sidewalk snow removal and sensible Code Compliance.

Please vote for Candace Moon.  It is a pleasure having her to work with on Council.

Keeping Centennial Progressing

     I am committed to keeping Centennial progressing by keeping the character of our neighborhoods whole, keeping taxes low and property values high, and keeping our Quality of Life and our Standard of Living. These are the things that make Centennial such a wonderful place to live, to have a family, and to work.

Keeping Our Focus on Innovation in Infrastructure and Community Resources

       I am committed to keeping our focus on innovation in infrastructure and community resources by improving our roads and bridges, improving our parks and recreation facilities, and improving our trails and open spaces. Our Quality of Life and our Standard of Living are tied to our ability to get around town without trouble and our ability to spend time in beautiful places within our own city.

Keeping Our City Government Accountable to You by Listening to You

       I am committed to keeping our city government accountable to you, by listening to you. I am committed to keeping our city debt-free, to keeping our city government efficient and effective, and most importantly, to keeping our city government transparent, responsive, and accountable.

Dear Citizens,

 

This is an update for the results of the City Council Study Session on Ordinance 2019-024, Motor Vehicle Parking on Private Party.  First though, I thank those who came to the meeting last night or listened to our live stream and patiently waited for the study session to the end because the session was conducted in two parts.  We had a hard stop at 7pm, to allow recognition of Constitution Week; conducted the regular meeting and then resumed the study session with public comment.  I also thank those concerned citizens who made public comment and those who contacted me with their concerns. If you were unable to attend, you can listen to the meeting at www.centennialco.gov at agenda and meetings.

 

Ordinance 2019-024 officially died at motion due to a second to the motion not being made.  My decision to let this motion die for the proposed ordinance included several reasons.  

 

  • Comments and questions made by citizens indicated that this proposed ordinance was too complicated and not easily understood.  I recommended that the language be simplified, and other modifications be made.

  • Concerns about drainage and water need to be clarified with SEMSWA.

  • Comments from citizens who made public comment indicated that they would incur considerable expense to bring their properties to align with the proposed ordinance.  Council’s intent was not to cost undue financial costs.

  • Comments received from residents and conversation between residents showed that this was a highly divisive issue brought about by the misinformation that was distributed by a candidate running for District 1.  Council has no intention to make the city an HOA and has no power to do such an act.

  • Our community is stronger and a more enjoyable place to live when we have public conversation that is respectful, equitable and fair.  Council does not intend to have a divided community over individual property rights.  Council acts in the best interest of the city and residents.

 

The issue that this ordinance presented can be brought up again by a council in the future.  All references to Ordinance 2019-024 are stricken and cannot be used.  City staff has stopped all work in reference to this ordinance.

 

My ask of you is that if you have suggestions that would make this issue of motor vehicles on private property equitable to all, please send a communication to me, at either 303 754 3354 or at cmoon@centennialco.gov.  Last night, many residents stressed the importance of talking with neighbors; helping neighbors and encouraging other RV owners to keep their property neat in order to understand the value that they as RV owners, bring to the community. I commend them for being so willing to make their community a better place.  On the other hand, some residents privately expressed that they remain silent about the condition of some individuals’ cluttered property because they value their relationships with their neighbors.  I understand and respect their strength.

 

I appreciate your comments and concerns.  I remain dedicated to serving you, the city and acting in the best interest of all.
