Community volunteer Tammy Maurer has officially announced her candidacy for Centennial City Council in the city’s central District 2. Maurer, a city resident since Centennial’s 2001 incorporation, has served in a number of volunteer roles in the municipal government, including work to update the Comprehensive Plan.
“I look forward to earning the vote of my neighbors and Centennial residents I’ve not yet met,” she said. “I am ready to get to work preparing Centennial for the future and believe my skills and history with the city have prepared me for this role. I would be honored to be elected for this important role.”
Maurer is an engineer and has been involved in transportation planning and what she describes as “innovative solutions and improve safety for Colorado drivers.” Touting a history of being collaborative and responsive, the candidate says she is “someone who listens, evaluates and finds the best solutions to problems.”
Her stated community-involvement highlights include serving on the committee for Centennial Next, the city’s Comprehensive Plan update, and serving as a vice president of Centennial Council of Neighborhoods. Since 2009, Maurer has provided review and comment for Centennial’s proposed development, redevelopment and variance requests for the organization often abbreviated as CenCON.
The candidate also served on the 2014 Gold Medal Citizen Committee for South Suburban Parks and Recreation, worked on Centennial’s Vision 2030, and was president of Ridgeview Hills North Civic Association.
Maurer says her priorities, if elected, include:
• Transportation: Addressing the city’s “inadequate capacity and infrastructure to ensure more efficient transportation while using technology and real-time data to develop smarter systems and partnering with neighboring governments to find better solutions.”
• Responsible and smart development: Cultivating development in a “business-friendly atmosphere” that supports Centennial’s long-term needs while preserving open space
• Ensuring Centennial remains a safe and healthy community
• Increasing senior services
Maurer, a Colorado native, and husband Denny have raised their three children in Centennial.
