Why I am running for Public Office

By Pamela Gross

Candidate for Member Council at Large; City of Loveland

This information is provided by the candidate
As a first time candidate for public office, I am a fresh face with a new perspective. As a local accountant and entrepreneur I will bring a business owner's perspective to local government.
I am a first time candidate for public office because I think the City of Loveland needs a new face and a new perspective on City Council.

As a local business owner and accountant, I believe my particular skill set will be an asset to the city. I understand numbers, budgets and financial statements. As a citizen, I emphasize the importance of financial stewardship. Having built my own business, I have learned to listen well and communicate clearly. I know what it takes to transform complex issues into practical solutions. I think "outside the box" and offer proactive approaches with a positive attitude.

It is quite common to have representatives who have been in office for many years, Loveland is no different. I believe we need new leadership and direction. It's time for new faces and new perspectives. We need new thinking in government especially from people who have worked in the private sector. I can offer that experience.

I have never run for public office so this decision was heartfelt and important to me. Involvement in our local government is essential because the actions of our local representatives have enormous impact on our everyday lives. I am ready for this new challenge and with your help on Nov 5th; we can start making a difference together.
