What are the proper priorities for Longmont?

Do they come out of a political class who say, “They alone are the ones who know what the priorities should be.” Or should fundamental priorities come from the people. What do the people of Longmont want Longmont to be. After all, it is everyone's town.

Joan Peck may not have a Dr. in front of her name but she does know how to listen to the citizens. And listen she does. Then from what she hears from the people, all of the people, and from what she has experienced of Longmont, as a 44-year resident and 6-year councilmember, she moves to get results.

A good mayor is someone who has sound judgment that can be applied to any issue and has the people skills to build community. Joan has shown she has both qualities and more. Vote Joan our next mayor.
