Sarah Levison for Mayor
I will help Longmont continue to welcome new businesses and high paying jobs. I will balance new development with and preserve the character of our established neighborhoods. I will ensure Longmont will grow and yet maintain a unique, resilient community while at the same time sustaining and respecting our natural environment.
"Levison served on the city council 2 terms, 2007 and 2011. She offers a strong voice for the areas covered in the Sustainability Plan. She also supports moving Longmont to 100% renewable energy and will work with other communities to achieve this goal."
- Sierra Club
"We believe that Levison is the best person to lead the Longmont Council as it confronts the important and complicated issues of an invading oil and gas industry; the environmental impacts of future growth and water needs; protecting Longmont’s cultural and economic diversity by addressing affordable housing and childcare, all while maintaining and expanding Longmont’s current economic growth and positive small business environment."

"I am confident Ms. Levison, a 20-year resident of Longmont, has the knowledge, ability and desire to see to it that Longmont will remain a safe and welcoming location for new residents and businesses as well as to provide for the current population.
