Manitou Mayor Nicole Nicoletta will seek a second two-year term in the November 2017 city election, the Pikes Peak Bulletin
The mayor, who has presided over fiscally cheery times in the west side town, says she wants to continue her work.
Nicoletta told the Bulletin:
I've succeeded in forming strong relationships with local and state leaders, including Colorado Springs Utilities and El Paso County, elected officials from surrounding municipalities, representatives from each of our military installations, and members of the Colorado Municipal League.
None of these successes could have happened without a team effort; Manitou Springs' team is rocking it right now. The city is in fantastic shape — not perfect but doing very well. Every one of us is working incredibly hard to tend to the city.
Nicoletta will be challenged by longtime resident Ken Jaray, a retired lawyer, former Manitou Springs city attorney and the founder of several community organizations in the area. Jaray told the Bulletin
that he will focus on community engagement, particularly when it comes to implementing Manitou's new master plan. Jaray stressed that keeping Manitou looking good would be a top priority of his.
"It's important to always keep track of how we present to the outside world: potholes filled, streets clean, parks and commercial areas where people feel comfortable," Jaray told the Bulletin
