Espinoza is a professional architect, community representative and 15-year resident of Jefferson Park. Espinoza declared his primary goal of restoring responsive, responsible representation to the district.
“My positions will be thoughtful and based on giving an intelligent voice to your ideas,” Espinoza told the cheering crowd. “You will always know where I stand, and why. You will always know the facts on which I am basing my positions. You, your neighbors, and our Northwest Denver neighborhoods will always be my priority.”
In a District 1 survey conducted in December, 70% of respondents stated they do not believe they have a voice in City decision-making. It also showed strong concern about development that residents consider out of scale and often disrespectful of the character of Northwest Denver Neighborhoods.
“These results are damning for the one-term incumbent,” Espinoza said. “I want all of us, the community, to have a voice in decisions that concern us. I am committed to being that voice.”
“As an architect, I am very much in favor of good, smart development. I know how to work with neighbors, our local businesses, developers and the City to make that happen,” Espinoza said.
