More Open Space Needed

The taxpayers voted to keep Tabor refunds and of the initial refund
amount, $8.5 million was identified for open space. City Council has met and started the discussion regarding potential land acquisition.



My focus is equity throughout the city and purchasing the most available land with the money at hand. Due to decreasing sales tax revenues, the city will not see TABOR refund this year.

Ramey: We Must Be Good Stewards of Taxpayer Money

As stewards of taxpayer money, this issue is near to my heart. Your
money must be spent as if I were writing checks from my own individual check book. In consideration of the current diminishing sales tax revenues, budget cuts are imminent, but must be done strategically. Above all we need to maintain a high level of public safety. Our Lakewood Police Department can not be compromised.

Strategic Growth Initiative ie. "200"

This citizen-initiated ballot issue passed July 2nd. Even though it was the "vehicle" for allocation of reasonable residential building permits, it was perceived as far more. This initiative represented years of citizen concern and outcry regarding the pace of high-density residential buildings. You, the people wanted input into the future growth of our city, and your neighborhood and most importantly you believed no one was listening, so you took matters into your own hands. My first priority as Mayor is to restore trust that you really do have someone in office who listens, cares and knows we are there to serve YOU. I will ignite a sense of hope that we truly are Lakewood Strong.
Ramey on Lakewood's Trash Situation

There are many ideas and thoughts about trash collection and because there is a personal financial component, I voted to put it on the ballot for the people to vote. This issue is bigger than the 11 votes from council.
