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.

Longmont Mayor 2017

Endorsements

 
 
While each candidate for mayor has their own strengths, we believe that Sarah Levison is the right choice at this time.

Sarah Levison is a former two-term member of Council. She is generally highly regarded for her well-researched positions. She is an exhaustive researcher and reader, and will bring many well-thought-out ideas to the Council. She is pragmatic and patient when it comes to problem-solving, and she understands that Tuesday night on TV is not the time or place for Council members to air their dirty laundry. That is a quality that will serve the new Council well when she is mayor.

Levison helped pass Longmont’s first oil and gas regulations and defended the fracking ban. She initiated the City’s summer lunch program and has been an outspoken advocate for early childhood education. She also created RISE, Longmont’s anti-poverty program. In short, she accomplishes things that matter.

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.
