On The Issues
Private Property Rights
Private property rights are much more than what you can physically do to your own property or prevent others from doing. It involves the right to water whether in town or for agriculture. It is important your next county commissioner has foresight to ensure water is available for the continued growth of our community. We have the right to be made aware of any proposed land use changes that will affect your property and its use. We have the right to prevent the government from taking your property without adequate compensation and consent. It is your property and you need an advocate who understand property use, issues, regulations and freedoms. Your next county commissioner also has the responsibility to ensure there are jobs available and a thriving economy that continues to protect the value of your property. Larimer County has the best land in Colorado. It should be protected and Aislinn is the best-equipped candidate to protect your property and all lands in Larimer County.
You have the right to safe transportation around your community. You have the right to a representative that understands how to analyze budgets and create partnerships to maintain and plan for roads and bridges throughout the county. The answer to effective transportation systems is not always raising your taxes. Your next county commissioner should continue to prioritize this and find creative solutions that don’t cost you money. We must plan for transportation and growth efficiently to be the best of Colorado. Aislinn is the best candidate to ensure safe and adequate transportation for Larimer County.
Health and Human Services oversight is a primary job of a county commissioner. There are many pieces that contribute to the health of Larimer County:
- Affordability: All citizens of Larimer county need access to housing, food, and water they can afford. Often, policy can drive up these prices through additional taxes, fees, and decisions that will create an increase to the basic cost of living. Your next county commissioner must be deliberate and provide solutions that do not make it so only the wealthy can thrive in Larimer County.
- Landfill/Water/Environment: We all choose to live in Larimer County in part because of its amazing recreation, beauty, open spaces and cleanliness. Solutions are needed when our community outgrows the current landfill. Clean air and water are essential to healthy living. Every solution and policy must be sustainable financially. Your next county commissioner must provide solutions that will be sustainable through negotiation, prioritization and fiscal responsibility in order to maintain our community as the best of Colorado.
- Mental Health: With the passing of the mental health initiative in 2018, the taxpayers approved the dedication of additional funding to support the mental health crisis in Larimer County. Being in healthcare for 15 years and at the bedside, Aislinn has seen the crisis first-hand while holding the hands of those affected. Unfortunately, there is little access to mental healthcare in Northern Colorado and cost can be a deterrent for those who need it most. This new funding must not only be used directly for those in need of these services, but it cannot stop with just the passing of this initiative. There must be planning for the financial sustainability of this program into the future to continue to help those in need.
Larimer county withstood a dramatic decline in the economy around the country and fared much better than many other communities. This was due to the planning and prioritization of diversified jobs, low taxes, and fiscal responsibility. With the continued growth Northern Colorado is experiencing, your next county commissioner must continue to provide this stability and vision. Partnerships with other public and private entities is vital to responsible growth in Larimer County. Proven ability to attract and maintain job opportunities with various businesses from small to large is essential to sustaining our economy through this growth period. Making cumbersome and overreaching policy often has unintended consequences on the economy of local communities.
