Day around Westy

Thank you, Westminster residents, for a fun, interactive day yesterday. We kicked off the day in Westminster High School's annual homecoming parade, handing out candy and balloons. Then, headed to Westy Firehouse Station 6 open house where we learned invaluable lessons about how people, especially children, can mistake medication/vitamins for candy. The flight for life chopper was able to make an appearance as well! Pretty cool! Afterwards, we headed out to talk to more residents at their doors, listening to the issues important to them. To top off the day, we grabbed dinner at Big Mac and Little Lu's delicious seafood restaurant! Another busy day ahead, meeting and talking with residents!#VoteLindseyForWesty #ElectLindseySmith #BeInvolved #WestyIsBest#PickSix #GotYourSix

We must never forget

"Above all, I hope that today's events have shown you that life can go at a moment's notice. Therefore, live it to the fullest. Take hold of the good that comes your way." - Unknown, 9/11 memorial quote.

We will never forget. I will never forget...My heartfelt sorrow to all who lost their life that day.
While we may be divided in thought, we are all bound by the human spirit. Today, I take pride in remembering those who have fought and continue to fight for our country and for our freedom. My appreciation goes to our first responders, military, and those who continue to keep us safe. But also those who simply stand on principle on doing what's right. All of us have a civic duty to fulfill and each of us have our own path in doing so. But we must never forget that it takes each and every one of us to denounce hatred, rebuild what's broken, and speak from love - that's the foundation of building our community, our great nation. We must never forget...

Busy weekend & supporting our Westy Fire Department

Busy, fun weekend on the campaign trail! I had the opportunity to talk with more Westminster residents at their doors about what they love about Westminster and what we can work on as a city. I also attended the Westminster CFIRE (Citizens for Westminster Fire Department) Knock on Cancer event at Snooze. All proceeds will be used to obtain cancer prevention equipment, continuing education for cancer prevention and individual support in the unfortunate event of a fire fighter who develops cancer.

Another busy week is ahead! Hope to see you on the trail! — with
Evan Underwood and Lindsey Smith.


Listening to community concerns

Last night, nearly 100 residents and several staff members attended a city-hosted community meeting to talk about all things Westminster. Several asked about our water resources, open space, growth and transportation, housing and density development, including work on the old Westminster mall site.

While 100 folks do not represent the majority of Westminster, I can tell you these issues resonate within our community as I'm hearing first hand going door to door talking with residents one-on-one. These issues are not easy to tackle, but as your next city councilor, I will be collaborative on working to solve them.

Can't thank my family enough for the thoughtful items to #ElectLindseySmithand #VoteLindseyForWesty! My mom made the hats and sister made the car decals! Again, thank you all for helping me to earn a seat on council!#SupportYourHometownGal #LindseyForWesty

National Night Out!

Yesterday was National Night Out, an evening celebrated across the nation where together, neighbors and law enforcement bring back a true sense of community! Community building at its finest. Thanks to all who came out, including Westminster PD and Westminster Fire Department. It was such a joy getting to meet new people, and a pleasure to talk with young boy scouts on what it means to be a leader in the community.

Meeting residents at their doors

I truly believe elections are won getting to know residents at their doors. Another great weekend talking with residents, adding yard signs to the community and working hard to earn your vote! An added blessing it was to post a banner on a fence in the Villas, the community where I was raised.
If you have some time Sat., August 10, would love your help to get the word out to Vote Lindsey Smith!

Busy weekend meeting and talking with residents

Busy weekend on the campaign trail, working hard to earn your vote! Started Saturday off with a 5K Bubble Run with family and friends. Afterwards, I met voters at their doors. Then enjoyed more conversations with folks at Westy Brew Fest. Sunday, we canvassed all day! We have 77 days until ballots are sent to voters! I need your help. If you can support in any way - meeting residents at their doors, holding a meet and greet at your home, donating any amount to the campaign, placing a sign in your yard - please reach out.#ElectLindseySmith #VoteLindseyForWesty #EarningYourVote#MeetingYouAtYourDoor

On the campaign trail with young folks in the community

Spent the morning with the Youth Federalist Initiative (YFI). Getting youth involved and engaged in our communities is so important. They are our future. Our investment in the education of civic duty and what it means to an individual is the basis of building a strong and fruitful future for all of us. Thank you YFI for your support and showing young folks a highlight of what it means to be a candidate and walk door to door meeting residents.

Before the rain, I also had the opportunity to attend the Westminster Latino Festival meeting lots of wonderful people, listening to great music and eating yummy food! (Scroll through pics. to see more)
