| Philosophy of Local Government
Government should not aspire to be all things to all people, but should do the things it does do extremely well and at the lowest appropriate cost to taxpayers. Elected office should not be a career, but a community involvement opportunity. Local government allows citizens to be closer to decisions and have direct and timely input into decisions affecting their quality of life, their individual rights and their property values. It is important for council members to be involved in the community through schools, city boards and commissions, non-profit organizations and by remaining accessible and visible. By staying active locally, council members will get important community input to help determine how Broomfield will differentiate itself from other communities.
