Nancy Nickless is a newly announced candidate for Centennial City Council in central District 2. She and her husband have lived in the city’s Palos Verdes neighborhood since 1998.
The candidate says she “feels blessed to be in such an incredible city and gets energized by her daily views of our majestic mountains.”
Nickless, who says she strives to stay educated, informed and proactive, became interested in running for council while studying for her master’s in public administration, where coursework included investigating city structure and function. That is how she says she became familiar with Centennial’s home-rule charter and the city’s ordinance and referenda procedures.
Nickless says she cares about the “people’s voice” and the continued strategic progress of Centennial’s growth and development.
Currently, the candidate works as an accountant at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus, where she says she is reminded every day that “science curesa disease and good public administration makes a city thrive.”
The candidate similarly promises to make well informed, fact-based decisions.
“I have always been a registered Democrat, but do not identify with the far left,” she said, calling herself fiscally conservative and a believer that law protects liberty. “… Federalism is the way of the future, spontaneous free markets should prevail, and everyone has individual rights.”
Nickless looks forward to playing a role in the city’s future.
“Centennial is an exceptional city to be a part of and [I take] nothing for granted,” she said. “Growth is inevitable and can be a positive addition to our landscape, while it is also important to monitor for scale and infrastructure.”
