Kevin L. Dougherty

2000 W. 92nd Ave, #172

Background: I am a Vietnam Veteran / US Navy, graduating from Regis College and Ranum H.S. locally. I would like to continue representing my ward and being involved in our city's efforts with the infrastructure improvements and planned upgrades. I am very active in the Federal Heights Police-sponsored Neighborhood Watch program in our city. I have been retired since 2015 and, along with my wife, a resident of Holiday Hills since 2012.

Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Informed, active, pleasant

Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job.

Four-years' experience being active in Federal Heights City Council. The willingness to support and improve our cities goals and inquire about improvements. Committed to improvements and enthusiastically gaining information that may be beneficial to our city. I live here and want my civic environment to be enjoyable and pleasant.

Please list your top three priorities if elected.

1) Maintaining a high level of professional skill and the material improvements for our police and fire departments.

2) To improve our amenities and quality of life for our citizens.

3) To improve the access and safety of our 92nd Avenue and Holiday Hills Community entry points.

Discuss economic growth in your community. How can you balance economic opportunity with current residents' desire to preserve their way of life?

Economic growth opportunities within our city is very limited and care should be taken to ensure the maximum benefit for all. We should be supportive to our citizens and their choices in their of way of life and with the least amount of intrusion while improving the city services as much as possible.

What is the city's role in guiding redevelopment for areas in need of repair? Where would you target the city's redevelopment efforts and dollars?

To encourage various upgrades that improve the sales of our existing business and make it as pleasant for them to continue providing their services to our citizens. I would be targeting the area along Federal Boulevard from 88th to 104th avenues and encourage development of the parcels of land along 92nd Avenue. That would provide an appealing site for future businesses to come to our city.

Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Totally people centered

Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job.

Understanding the needs of Ward II residents and working with them in an honest and forthright way on a day-to-day basis. I will meet and know Ward II residents. I won't neglect them between elections. And I realize the power of good financial management: paying for life as you go and never going beyond your means.

Please list your top three priorities if elected.

Put Ward II residents first, before my political needs. Keep Federal Heights financially sound. And maintain City services to our residents by first providing the City employees with realistic wages and benefits to boost staff retention.

Discuss economic growth in your community. How can you balance economic opportunity with current residents' desire to preserve their way of life?

The City needs to make decisions that bolster the City's financial base and also give residents something in return, and that's more than just once a year trash day or a day at Water World. In that is a balance we must find, one not yet attained in Federal Heights.

What is the city's role in guiding redevelopment for areas in need of repair? Where would you target the city's redevelopment efforts and dollars?

Redevelopment is a touchy issue in the City because so much is owned by large corporations or held in part by small, individual land owners. We need a balance of retail and services. To do that, the City must maintain infrastructure to make Federal Heights not only habitable but good for business and use what City land is zoned for business to attract new commerce.
