How long have you lived in Kremmling?
I moved to Kremmling 31 years ago. Chris (McElroy) and I were married in 1988. Where are you employed? When someone asks me what I do for a living I like to joke “Anything to keep from getting a real job!” But the truth is that I am completely invested in Kremmling and Grand County. Right after Chris and I were married, we both went to work for the McElroy Ranch, which we now own and operate along with our son Cole and daughter Dillan. In 2000 we purchased a manufacturing company that makes meadow harrows – used in agriculture and landscaping – which we build and distribute across the US, Canada and Mexico. We also own 3 rental houses, and the self serve car wash on east Hwy 40.

Why do I want to be a Kremmling Board member?
I believe that my years in Kremmling, the fact that my wife and I have been able to continue the family ranch and have created several successful businesses, our amazing friends and fellow citizens of the area; that doesn’t just happen by accident. We are truly blessed to have raised our kids here. They both wish to remain in Kremmling and so now it is time to step up and serve the community.
I pay attention to what is going on in this town. I have also served on the Sanitation District Board for 8 years, so I am very familiar with the infrastructure of Kremmling. Even though the Town and Sanitation are 2 different (taxing) entities, they both have to work to serve the people of Kremmling, and I have found several cases where I did not feel like the Town was operating at its best – giving the impression of “us against them”. That is not how a citizen driven Board should operate. I want a proactive Board, one that is here to listen to its citizens and provide a framework of common sense regulations specific for our Town. I have noticed several situations where it was obvious that the current Code is not in keeping with the needs or inclinations of our citizens. I plan to use my experience as a self made business person to make Kremmling a place where everyone can be successful and live in an environment that works for them. We are not Summit County. We are not Steamboat Springs. We are not Granby or Winter Park; we are a working class town and will always be a working class town.

How long have you lived in Kremmling?
My husband and I decided to make the move to Kremmling once we found out we were having twins. Our hopes of having our new home ready before the twins were born were dashed when they decided to arrive 2 months early and before we actually owned the house. Needless to say, our lives suddenly turned a bit chaotic. However, all turned out well and we (as a family) moved to Kremmling in December of 2006 and have loved every minute of it.

Where are you currently employed?
I’m currently employed at The Well liquor store and have been there since shortly after it opened. I have also just recently started working for Mountain Mamas – Screen Printing and Embroidery.

Why are you running for town council?
I feel strongly about this town along with the families that live here, and the history it holds. I encourage growth and business development within the scope of our community values yet keep Kremmling’s small town feel. Therefore, I would like to have a say in the decisions made for the town and people who live here.

In order to achieve the promise of our town and become the Kremmling we know we can be, we must challenge the practices that have not worked. I would like the chance to be a part of that team. We must expect more from our leaders and local government.

The reason I’m running for town council is to promote growth and safety for the generations to come. Kremmling has always been a great place to raise a family, and I would be honored to help maintain that image. One of my goals is to make sure that Kremmling PD has the support and resources they need to continue to keep Kremmling a great place to live. I want to support all current businesses and encourage any and all new businesses. I feel that I have a lot to offer and it would be a privilege to serve the community of Kremmling.
