Katherine Cornwell: City Council District 1

I am proud to be supporting Katherine Cornwell for City Council District 1 (northwest Denver). Katherine is extraordinarily qualified, with 15 years of experience as a city planner. She has been a resident of northwest Denver for the last 10 years, and has a deep understanding of the issues that affect our neighborhoods. She will be ready to do her job as an effective City Councilperson on day 1 -- she has the skills and knowledge base to hit the ground running.

Katherine has made the local food economy one of the key issues of her platform. She recognizes the vital role that sustainable urban food systems hold in the development of healthy communities. Our local food system is also a tremendous untapped opportunity for economic growth. Our community spends over $6 billion dollars each year on food that is trucked in from far-away farms. Katherine wants to bring some of that money home to our local economy, creating countless jobs -- and improving our health and environment along the way.

Please join me at a Meet & Greet on Tuesday, April 19th from 5:30-8:30 at The Oriental (4335 W. 44th Ave). Take the opportunity to talk with Katherine and share your thoughts about the issues that affect northwest Denver.
