Video Interview: Kathy Sandoval (CD3)

Colorado Confidential's Mark Mehringer recently interviewed Kathy Sandoval, candidate for City Council in Council District 3.

After brief remarks about her background in local schools and city planning work, the discussion turned to neighborhood interest in the new light rail system to District 3. Sandoval demonstrates a strong understanding of balancing development opportunities and community needs.

Transportation then gave way to a discussion of foreclosures, which leads to further concerns about graffiti, crime, and property values in general. Sandoval foresees solutions through housing non-profits, land banking, and effective targeting of resources to District 3.

Sandoval directed a question about education toward city-school partnerships, and the nexus between educational performance and neighborhood communities.

More information available in the 12-minute discussion.
