Spring is on the way!! After a long and hard winter, spring gives us all something to look forward to. With that being said, we all know that our lawns have taken a beating after this winter. But there is new help in town for our lawns; Twisted Pine Lawn & Tree Care. Twisted Pine Lawn & Tree Care is a Colorado lawn service, owned by, Kevin Hubbard of Mead. He started Twisted Pine Lawn & Tree Care in the summer of 2012 after acquiring ten years in the business. Kevin started his business because he noticed that there were many homeowners in his neighborhood that were using other lawn companies. However, their lawns and trees were not looking as good as they should have even though they were being taken care of “professionally”. Kevin has been in the lawn and tree maintenance business for over a decade now and some have even called him the "grass whisperer". While he may not whisper, he definitely has the knowledge to treat and help make your lawn and trees look the best on the block.. Kevin’s business is unique in that he looks at each lawn and tree and considers the individual environment surrounding it. He defiantly does not treat all lawns and trees in a “cookie cutter manner.” He takes pride in giving a more one-on-one approach with each client. Kevin feels there are no two lawns alike! Many lawns in the area are full of Ash trees. Did you know that these contract the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)? “The recent detection of EAB in Boulder could kill all of the Ash trees if left untreated,” says Kevin. The department of agriculture has a website devoted to this destructive pest and any homeowner or business with an ash tree or trees should visit for more information. There are several different treatment options available.

Vol. 2, Issue 2

Election Candidates ... VO Richard Macomber

MEAD MAYOR REPORT z As I sit down to write this column I am encouraged that, as of this date, ten individuals have requested petitions to run for election as both Mayor and town trustee. I am encouraged because these folks are stepping up to provide to the town and its constituents their thoughts, time, efforts and future thinking for our wonderful community. April 1st is election day and the polls will be open at the Mead Middle School, or you can vote by absentee ballot if you have requested one. I sincerely urge you to consider the qualifications of each of the candidates, their character, their realistic thoughts on the future of our town and if you believe you want them in a leadership role for the next four years. z Calendar time: The Spring clean up has been scheduled for April 25 and 26 at the Mead ponds. Also, the Mead Easter Egg Hunt will be held on April 19 BUT will be held at Founders Park due to the renovations of Town Hall. Many of you have asked about the renovations and I definitely know that the town staff, fire district and all of our residents are anxiously watching the construction and when they can move back into the new quarters. In a meeting with the engineers and construction firm the other evening we were given a move in date of July (this year) and an analysis that we are under budget. z What would the Spring be like without the likes of continuing to develop the town’s infrastructure ! Your Board is working on final plans for the trail that will extend from Welker Avenue to Adams Avenue and have it meander instead of being just a straight path. This will be an eight foot wide path out of concrete so we can keep it clean for all seasons. We are also going over plans for the capability to improve the water flows to the downtown area and assure there is a continuous loop in case of a water main break. Plans are also being worked on for the expansion of Welker Avenue from Third Street going west to WCR 5 as well as the now very busy intersection of Welker and Third Street. If you haven’t noticed there are two new donated benches around the downtown Mead welcome sign. Thank you to the donors for this wonderful amenity. And as the Spring snow storms keep coming, so do pot holes. Our Public Works department is working diligently to keep up with them but if you see a new one, please let them know so they can repair it. z As you know, Mead is “Open For Business” and as such I would like to welcome six new enterprises that have joined us. Those businesses are Colorado Drywall Supply, Environmental Noise Control, J.A.R. Concrete, Jeepers LLC, Next Generation Environmental and Construction, and Route 66 Restaurant Equipment. Welcome aboard. z As always you are welcome to come to your Town Board’s semimonthly meeting to give us your input on how we can improve the best town on the front range to live, work, play and raise a family. If you can’t make one of our meetings, then please either give me a call, send me an email, or talk to one of your elected Trustees. We are always willing to meet you for a cup of coffee if you desire. Please drive carefully as we encounter some of these Spring snow falls and keep the men and women protecting our freedoms in your prayers, no matter where in the world they may be stationed. Semper Fi !

Abundant Life Church Sunday Service at 10am 4380 Highway 66 1/3 mile east of I-25 Longmont, CO 80504

My name is Debra Brodhead, but most people call me Debbie. A lot of people still remember me by my married name of Debbie Hegwood . Some people still call me that and I don't mind. I am running for a Trustee position on the Board of Trustees for the Town of Mead. I moved with my parents, Milton and Rosina, and brother, Stephan, to Colorado in 1973, when my dad retired from the USAF. I graduated from Longmont High School, got married, and had my son, Shawn. I have 2 wonderful stepdaughters, Andrea and Kendra, and 6 grandchildren ranging from 10 months old to 21. I have lived in and around Mead starting in 1977, but my continuous residence started in 1984. I live in the older part of Mead and have seen all of the growth around the area going back as far as 1973. I was a prior Trustee from 1993-1998 and then again from 2004-2012. I have worked for Weld County Sheriff's Office as the Office Technician at the Del Camino SW Substation for 11 1/2 years and prior to that I was the Utility Billing and Building Permit Clerk for the Town of Mead. I am one of the Directors on the Mountain View Fire Protection District and the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers board. I work with a great group of people in both of these boards, which works to help the citizens in our area. I am also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which has helped me learn about some of my ancestors and to meet monthly with a great group of ladies. I believe with all the boards and groups I belong to I have gained a wide variety of experience and knowledge. I hope everyone is able to vote for their favorite candidate on April 1, 2014. The polling place is at the Mead Middle School or you can request an absentee ballot from the Town hall. Thank you for your support in my run for a Trustee position on the board. -"I have been an active part of Mead's past, and I want to be a part of the group that guides her future". Debbie

Ursula J. Morgan For Mayor

As Mayor, I am committed to fostering responsible growth management, preserving our quality of life, and fiscally responsible leadership. The Board must balance the interests of all property owners, residents, businesses, and the County. Mead is a small community. Like many of you, that is one of the reasons we chose Mead in which to raise our family. Land use, property values, air quality, infrastructure and facility maintenance, and budget policies affect all of us. Many of the challenges we face today stem directly from managing growth and subsequent maintenance requirements throughout the Town. Looking beyond our borders, we must do a better job of interacting with neighboring municipalities, the county, and the state to better coordinate planning and management of the rapidly expanding growth at our doorstep. My experience includes serving on the Board of Trustees for the Town of Mead, including service as Mayor Pro Tem. I also served as one of the Town of Mead’s Planning and Zoning

Commissioners. I am serving on the Board of Directors for United Power and on the Board of Directors for the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). I have served as a Policy Setting Committee Member with the Colorado Municipal League, and on the Transportation and Air Quality Planning Councils for the Upper Front Range and North Front Range of Colorado. I am also a member of the Colorado Women in Government Committee. I have completed the Colorado Municipal League’s Elected Officials’ Training and the Advanced Training Programs along with the NRECA’s Credential Cooperative Director Training Program. I have been a homeowner in Mead since 1995. Together with my husband Jeff we have two wonderful children, Zack and Bailey. I attended the University of Northern Colorado, and have worked in e-commerce, senior health care/hospice, and as a Real Estate Appraiser specializing in Weld County properties. I am also a dedicated volunteer fundraiser for The Children’s Hospital Foundation and The Children’s Miracle Network. I can be reached at Your questions, comments, and concerns are always welcome.

Debra E. Bancroft for Re-Election as Trustee

others. She volunteers with the Longmont United Hospital and is active with the Mead Area Chamber of Commerce. In 2009 she was appointed as Commissioner on the Mead Planning Commission. Her concern for Mead and its future interested her so in 2012 Debra ran for election and was voted in as a new member to the Board of Trustee. Debra clinched a two year term and is now seeking re-election to continue serving the residents of Mead. Debra’s family consists of educators, doctors, police officers and former oil industry workers. If you have concerns about what is going on in Mead…help re-elect her to the Board of Trustees. She is all about family and community and plans to do what is right for the residents of Mead. Debra would like to ask for your vote on April 1st so she can continue to help lead the Town of Mead and its residents in a positive direction. She can be contacted by email at if you have any questions.

Jody Orback for Trustee

also served on the planning commission board. I now serve on the Town of Mead’s Downtown Revitalization board, and you will see at most all meetings that concern the citizens and issues that face the town. I am also a member of Mead Chamber of Commerce. Having been/being involved in all of these activities, you can see that I work long and hard for positive changes in both my community and families. I now feel that the time has come for me to seek elected office, I want to bring fresh ideas and positive solutions to the board of trustees for the Town of Mead. I am very concerned about all issues that face the town and believe together we can work on solutions that will enhance our great community. I would be only one vote on the board, but I will make my vote count toward a bright and positive vision that we all have for the Town of Mead. I ask that you support me in this goal and vote for me, so I may serve you, your families, and the Town of Mead. Thank you for your support, Jody Orback

Mead town resident Debra E Bancroft is running for re-election to the Board of Trustees. On April 1, 2014 registered voters in the Town of Mead will elect three new Trustees and a new mayor. In 2007 Debra retired from work as a High School Secretary after 18 years of service in Antioch, CA. While living in Antioch she filled her time raising two children and volunteering in her children’s schools as PTA President, Newsletter Editor and Secretary. Both Debra and her husband, David, fell in love with the Town of Mead and decided to make it their home in retirement. Retirement is not really a word that she uses lightly as she is active with her own businesses as well as volunteering in the community. Debra believes in being "Committed to Community" and service to

I am campaigning for a position on the board of trustees for the town of Mead. My name is Jody Orback, I have lived in the town of Mead for 6+ years, in the Liberty Ranch subdivision, with my husband Roy and 3 little spoiled dogs.

He wants to share the forward thinking and visionary skills developed over his career with the community he cares for very much. By seeking a position on the Town Board Herman feels he can provide the insight and experience needed to guide Mead’s future. It is always a pleasure to give back to this great community in a positive and constructive way.

Key Issues

Infrastructure A major goal is to insure that as Mead grows, it remains a safe and a prepared

community. We can prepare Mead for the future by taking a proactive role in the improvement of police, fire, medical and education infrastructure. Economic Development Prosperous businesses in Mead benefit the entire community. Mead leadership must work closely with small businesses to develop and maintain solid relationships which will help their businesses succeed and, in turn, attract essential businesses to the community. Communication It is tremendously vital to inform the community of future issues. Herman hopes to improve communications with the community through quarterly town hall meetings. For local flow of information, ensure the “Mead Messenger,” encompasses all community activities and meetings, Also, improving Mead’s web site to be more functional and have it interact with social media.
