Since being elected in 2011, Dougan has become known for her conservative views and tendency to support Mayor Steve Bach. She has been supportive of spending in her own district, especially for a new fire station, but has often made headlines by targeting other city expenditures for ridicule. Dougan has strongly opposed installing Neumann Technology upgrades to the Drake Power Plant.
The following is from her campaign:
Angela Dougan has announced she is officially running for City of Colorado Springs City Council District 2 today, November 28, 2012.
After much exploration into whether I should run for a four year term, I was quite honored to see the overflowing amount of support and encouragement for me to run for re-election. Just this week, I have already picked up nearly 4000.00 dollars in donations and thousands more have been pledged. I am just amazed at the incredible amount of volunteers who are stepping up to help with my campaign. It is very humbling.
I will continue to work hard to be the voice of the citizens of District 2 and will keep demanding that every tax dollar /rate payer dollar is treated as the precious commodity it is, and that government will focus on what government does best; infrastructure, streets, transportation and public safety which will enhance job growth. I pledge to keep bringing common sense back to table.
Angela Dougan was elected in April of 2011 to fill the seat of Darryl Glenn when he was elected to County Commissioner.
