Thornton Council Ward 1

​Pauline Dickerson

Candidate Dickerson said she has withdrawn from the race and declined to submit a profile.

Jacqueline Phillips

8960 Fox Dr. #204 Thornton

Background: I grew up in south Chicago and raised my daughter in Colorado. I put myself through university and am a teacher, professor and civil rights attorney for children. I want to continue my work in south Thornton to make sure there is equity throughout Thornton. That means safety, revitalization, jobs that pay decent wages, parks, development, code enforcement, working with schools and empowering the community so we are not left behind.

Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Results-oriented, inclusive, empowering

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

Please list your top three priorities if elected.

1. Thornton Shopping Center redevelopment

2. Balanced housing (multi-family housing mixed with single family and affordable throughout the city)

3. Safe community

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

Ward One brings in the most sales tax revenue for the city, so we want economic growth that provides benefit to south Thornton. At a minimum, we want decent development keeping in mind we are have the most people living in the most crowded space. We paid for the Rec Center, the Golf Course and the Outlets up north. It's our turn now.

Would you put limits or regulations on oil and gas developments in the city, or is that something best left to the county, the state or someone else?

Clearly, with the passage of SB 181, there are new opportunities for municipalities to provide for the health, safety and welfare of residents. We look at this on a case by case basis.

1121 Carrol Court, Thornton

Background: I spent 14 years serving our country, including four overseas deployments, and was honorably discharged in 2010 to focus on raising my young and growing family — my wife, Cisca, my 20-year-old daughter Emily who is following in my footsteps in the U.S. Navy and a 12-year-old son Brody.

After the Navy, I put myself through college and now I lead a team of graphic designers as a Marketing Director for an insurance broker firm.

Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Direct, hands on.

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

My military service has provided me with the skills and leadership to accomplish anything placed before me.

Please list your top three priorities if elected.

Public Safety and School Safety

Parks and Recreation

Road Improvements

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

Thornton is continually growing and with growth comes jobs and jobs bring opportunity to those that are seeking out a way to better their position in our city. I am a believer in growth and change. I welcome it. Our residents' way of life is ever evolving and changing, and growth and opportunity stand to make that growth and change the best it can possibly be.

Would you put limits or regulations on oil and gas developments in the city, or is that something best left to the county, the state or someone else?

These topics are something that I feel we need to work on together with our county and state representatives. I feel strongly that topics such as these should be discussed and we need to ensure that everyone is educated in any matters before decisions are made. Together we can do what is best for our city.
