HERB ATCHISON IS SEEKING REELECTION AS MAYOR

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Herb Atchison wants to be reelected as mayor of Westminster. Under his 4-year-tenure, a process of transformation is taking place in Westminster, where the site of the old Westminster mall will become a downtown. “We are developing the city’s downtown. This was a request that the residents of the area were asking us for a long time. This project consists of 105 acres,” said Atchison.

Th mayor explained how this project includes a commercial area as well as residences. “Twenty eight percent of the houses to be built around downtown would be working force housing”, explained Atchison.  The city official announced that another 400 homes will be built in different areas throughout the city in the next four years. He is also proud of the opening of the first train station in the city and hopes for a second one within the next five years.

Welcoming immigrants

“Westminster is a welcoming city”, Atchison emphasized. “In this city, we do not stop people to ask about their immigration status. Immigration is a federal issue. This is the position of the city council, the city attorney and the police department,” he explained. Atchison faces opposition from Westminster councilman Bruce Baker, who believes the city should cooperate with ICE.

The welcoming of immigrants in Westminster was acknowledged by the National League of Cities. In March of this year, the city was awarded the “2017 City Cultural Diversity Award.” “Since 2015, we have made efforts to promote diversity,” said Atchison. The Mayor explained that the city has established an Inclusivity Board and the recommendations are being implemented. The Westminster Latino Festival is part of that effort.
