Steven R Cervantes' Biography

I am running for City Council because I believe in the direction the City of Thornton is going and I intend to achieve our shared goal of continued development and making Thornton a prosperous city. I also believe that, though well intended, some policies have been short sighted. I am also intimately aware of the economic struggles caused by the rising cost of housing coupled with stagnate wage growth and will push for programs that will enhance our residents and local businesses in their daily lives and activities. I am willing and able to make tough decisions that will benefit Thornton resident’s and businesses long term while not being short sighted in nature.

I have been a resident of the City of Thornton for 23 years and am a proud Thornton High School Alumni, having also attended Thornton Elementary and Middle School (now The International School at Thornton Middle). Since then, I have gone on to work in many industries including retail, health insurance and currently solar. During this time I have gained skills that have allowed me to deal well with ambiguity, criticism, complex rules and regulations, changes to industry regulation, all while having a positive and adaptive mentality and a strong desire to succeed. I have also had the pleasure of volunteering as a tax professional and serving on multiple boards and councils that have allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of finance, budgeting and planning.

My plan to be a true representative for the citizens of Thornton is based on listening to constituents, businesses and City staff, enhancing the quality of life and economic prosperity for residents and businesses, and being their voice in bringing their vision of our City to fruition.

My agenda will be to work with neighbors and fellow Council member’s to meet the high standards of our community. My goal will be to keep Thornton headed in a positive direction.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and joining me in my efforts.

I look forward to serving you,

Steven R Cervantes
