Levison announces re-election bid

Sarah LevisonSarah Levison has announced that she is seeking election to the city council at large seat. She has served on the Longmont City Council since 2007.

Levison will focus on three issues: Jobs, Transportation and Community Development.

“Longmont is a community with all the components in place to propel our local economy forward to create jobs, new investments by the private sector and new transportation choices. Now is the time to work harder and smarter to highlight our community’s assets to capitalize on every opportunity to attract and retain jobs.”

“Transportation choices and good infrastructure will be a key to furthering job growth in Longmont. I support keeping our local streets, bike lanes, side walks and trails in top notch condition. I have worked consistently to hold RTD accountable to the needs of our city for better regional and local bus service and to invest in local infrastructure. Finally, it appears that RTD is listening, having dedicated $17 million dollars to begin the work on the Station area for Fastracks. I have dedicated my time and energy to working with the Station Area Master Plan (STAMP) group to insure that Longmont gets what will best serve our community in design and investment.”

“Our community is one of the best in the Front Range and the country. This is a city that respects and values all its residents. My business card says, ‘Let’s work together toward a better Longmont.’ I remind myself everyday of the importance of a positive attitude to work with every group and every person in the city.”

As a 14 year resident of Longmont, Levison has long been active in the community in many roles. She served on Longmont City’s Economic Vitality Taskforce and the Longmont Museum Board. Sarah is a former neighborhood group leader for the Historic Eastside Neighborhood Association. Sarah has volunteered at Central Elementary and Heritage Middle Schools. She was the founder and director of the “Art in Collyer Park” program.
