Councilwoman Diana Carey announced her campaign for re-election to the Westminster City Council today, along with a strong endorsement from the Westminster Police Officers Association.
“I’m happy to announce my campaign for re-election,” Councilwoman Carey said. “I believe my experience on the city council, my deep ties to the community, as well as my focus on public safety, supporting our schools, libraries, and youth programs, and my continuing work on transportation projects and grants, qualifies me for another term as your Councilwoman. As an eight year member of the Chamber of Commerce and a former small business owner, I believe that there’s more we can do to improve the local business environment by enhancing our city infrastructure and upgrading our business districts. If re-elected to the council, each of my priorities will increase property values and make Westminster a more attractive and viable city.”
In 2015, Councilwoman Carey was named “Westminster Citizen of the Year,” in response to her her extensive volunteer leadership roles in local civic organizations and her unwavering commitment to the Westminster Community. She has been a champion for many local charitable causes, veteran groups and active-duty service members. This, among many other reasons earned her the endorsement of the Westminster Police Officers Association.
“Councilwoman Diana Carey has been the strongest supporter of Westminster Police,” said Westminster Police Officers Association President Mike Ogawa. “Fighting gangs and crime, helping the city and businesses through tough times — she earns our highest support and thanks. Diana Carey is the most effective, honest and smart public official and we proudly support and endorse her re-election.”
