On May 8th, 2018, the Roxborough Village Metropolitan District will hold an election for their Board of Directors. There are six (6) candidates to fill three (3) Board vacancies for four year terms. The candidates are:
Full Name: Robert “Bob” Clinard
Address: 7218 Red Mesa Ct.
How Long Have I Been in the Roxborough Village Community: I have been a resident of Roxborough since 2000.
My Career: Retired from Raytheon Company (2003) as Technical Director
Contributions to the Community: I have been a Board member since 2015, and previous to that I was a Board member from 2004 through 2012. I was term limited in 2012. In 2004, I worked with the Board to successfully pass the Bond issue that allowed the Board to reduce the RVMD property tax mil levy from 76 mils to 62 mils in 2005, and since then to 48 mils. I have been a strong advocate for the baseball field resurfacing and the recent outfield landscaping. I was part of the Board that secured funding from GOCO and Douglas County to augment District capital funding to build the highly recognized skate park.
Why I, Bob Clinard, am running for the Roxborough Village Metropolitan District Board: I am running for the Board to help ensure a prudent, cost-effective approach to the fiscal management of the District. Knowing the bankruptcy history of the District and the affects Tabor has on tax increases, I am acutely aware of the financial obstacles confronting the District until the bankruptcy bonds are retired in 2021. This experience makes me very sensitive to how the District spends its money. As a Board member, I will apply fiscal prudence to the District’s finances.

How Long Have I Been in the Roxborough Village Community: Since 2000, now in second home.
My Career: CDOT Civil Engineer since 1999
Contributions to the Community:
2000-2010: Roxborough Village First HOA board member
2001-2010 and 2014-2016: Roxborough Village Metro District Board Member and President. During this time was part of many good initiatives, including trail and facility upgrades, Master Planning, water resource planning, restructuring of debt, and spearheading of the Skate Board Park.

2011-2016: Roxborough Parent Teacher Involvement Committee (PTIC) leader of BamBam school activities and fundraisers, including Golf Tourney and Father/Daughter Dance.
2016-current: Lamb Spring Archeological Preserve Board Member
Why I, Steve Sherman, am running for the Roxborough Village Metropolitan District Board:
I wish to rejoin the Roxborough Village Metro District Board because I love Roxborough, having lived here far longer than anywhere else in my life, and because I have more ideas and energy to offer for the good of Roxborough Village.
Roxborough is a great community, but additional and enhanced amenities could improve our quality of life. Sterling Ranch may eventually bring some such assets, but with leveraged partnerships and funds we could have earlier recreation center access in our own neighborhood. We could also tackle the failing neighborhood fences, improve wildlife habitat, and build new recreation opportunities.
I hope to represent Roxborough Village in what could be a coming golden age, continuing my ongoing ambition to make our community the best possible place to live.
