You Deserve A Mayor That Will Put “You and Thornton First”
Colorado Politics: Former state Sen. Beth Martinez Humenik launches bid to be Thornton mayor (September 5th, 2019)
Former state Sen. Beth Martinez Humenik announced Thursday that she’s running in November to be Thornton mayor.
“I believe in open communication and an accountable, transparent and fiscally responsible government that serves Thornton residents well, since they are the major investors in the city,” said Martinez Humenik, who served two terms on the Thornton City Council before winning election in 2014 to represent Adams County’s Senate District 24.
Beth Martinez Humenik, a former state Senator and Thornton City Council member, announced her candidacy for mayor of Thornton last week.
“It is with great honor that I formally announce my candidacy to become the next mayor of Thornton,” said Beth Martinez Humenik. “As a resident of Thornton for the past 23 years and a former city council member, I understand the inner workings of the city and the importance of collaborating with other communities. I will utilize my vast experience to achieve results that will keep our great city evolving successfully into the future.”
With a decade of local and state government experience, I have the skills needed to be a strong, effective voice for our residents and our city. As an educator, I understand the importance of working with our school districts so that all children receive a quality education. As a fiscal steward, I will be thoughtful in the decision-making process regarding our residents’ investment in our city, so funds are spent responsibly in the annual budget.
In May, Colorado became one of the few states to ban surprise medical bills. A surprise medical bill is another name for an expensive out-of-network bill that a patient receives — by surprise — because the patient was treated at a medical facility or by a practitioner outside of their insurance network.
