Anita Seitz is running for Mayor of Westminster. Seitz currently holds the position after previous mayor Herb Atchison resigned earlier in 2021. She was first elected to City Council in 2013 and served as Mayor Protem from 2018 to May of this year. Seitz brings clear headed leadership to the role of mayor and addresses difficult city challenges with grace, confidence, and a forward looking vision. Seitz is a committed climate activist, previously serving as president for Colorado Communities for Climate Action and led Westminster to adopt environmentally conscious ordinances and policies. Her climate work garnered her national recognition as a leader on addressing issues related to climate change at the local municipal level. As Westminster and the northern Front Range grows in population and size, Seitz has a vision for economic and communal development that includes equity, sustainable growth, and increased quality of life.
Challenging Seitz is Nancy McNally. McNally is a former Westminster mayor and owner of the embroidery/crafting store, “Made and Created.” McNally’s campaign website lacks an “issues” section, but her social media presence makes clear that one of her main priorities is lowering water rates. McNally’s attitude is one that ignores the realities of climate change and dwindling water use in favor of empowering home owners to over-water their thirsty, Kentucky bluegrass lawns. While McNally brings extensive executive experience, her vision for the city does not match its future needs.
Seitz has the experience, leadership, and sustainable vision for the city of Westminster. She deserves your vote.
