Art has already served his country once in the U.S. Navy. Now, he's ready to fight for you again as Colorado Springs City Councilman in District 3. He'll fight for your right to be heard, for a safe place to live, and for good-paying jobs.
In 1986, Art joined the United States Navy as a naval aviator. (Yeah, just like Maverick in Top Gun.) His call sign was JFK. (It was the hair.)
Once in the middle of the Pacific in an early morning treacherous squall, Art had an epiphany. He realized it was all on him. He was responsible that night. No one else. That moment taught Art to own whatever comes along. That's why he spent his career teaching individual resiliency and the importance of helping others. Art likes to say, "When you help someone, you both grow stronger." Without a doubt, Art will have your six in District 3.
Art has felt the need...the need to serve again since the political climate went downhill, neighbors turned against neighbor, and some on the city council stopped listening to constituents. Pitch in if you want to be heard!
Now more than ever, we need to reconnect. We need people who listen to understand, not who listen to respond. Civility is part of my call to action.
Art doesn't want Colorado Springs to be tarnished. That's why he's against marijuana being sold for recreational use. The money isn't worth the crime, the blight, and our friends and children getting addicted. Let them do it in Denver, where there are more dispensaries than liquor stores, Starbucks and public schools.
