Hi, I'm Julie, and I’m running for re-election for City Council in District 2.
I’m honored to serve as your District 2 council member. I have worked to make Fort Collins a place to be enjoyed by all of our residents because I strive to be a forward-thinking official who listens to our community.
As your councilwoman, one of my favorite things has been meeting with constituents one-on-one and helping them solve their problems.
In my first term, I worked tirelessly to bring your concerns and ideas into my work as we navigated Covid-19 and prepare Fort Collins for the future.
I'm proud of the amazing work that I accomplished with my fellow Council Members, city staff, and you. And there's more work to be done.
I humbly ask for your vote and support to serve another 4 years.
I am, first and foremost, a 30 year Fort Collins resident. I lead a busy life with my husband, our ten-year-old son, and our rescue dogs and cats.
We love this city and all that it has to offer. Like so many of you, we spend as much time as we can outside, riding bikes or enjoying the natural areas.
I’m proud to be a CSU grad with the class of 1995. I earned a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from Drexel University and work not only as your Council Member, but also as a Senior Manager in Information Technology.
With over a decade of government experience, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate and collaborate with multiple government agencies, and get things done.
Building a community for all residents
Long before I was a councilwoman, I was a community volunteer.
I've maintained this commitment since moving here to Fort Collins in my early days at CSU.
I'm proud to volunteer and support multiple non-profit organizations that promote opportunities for people in need, animal welfare, environmental preservation, voter’s rights, and women’s rights.
I also stepped up as a member of the Citizen Review Board. I'm a graduate of the CityWorks 101 program and the Water Literate Leaders of Northern Colorado 2018-19 class.
And I was the Observer Corps Lead with the League of Women Voters.
Standing with facts,
leading with integrity.
I am a forward-looking leader committed to making Fort Collins work for everyone.
I'm proud of what we accomplished in my first-term, and there's more work to be done.
I ask for your vote in November, and I need your help to win re-election.
I believe you can tell a lot about a person based on where they volunteer their time and donate their money. Below is a list of organizations I support in these ways with my time, money, or both.
