Driscoll to run for District 1 seat

Mortgage executive wants council to say yes more often

Posted

Patrick Driscoll is one of two candidates vying for the District 1 city council seat after incumbent Bill Hopping decided not to pursue re-election.

Driscoll said he's running to take a different approach to business development.

“City council has been saying no to a lot of things over the past couple years, and I'd like us to start saying yes,” Driscoll said. “I want to let people know Littleton's open for business.”

Driscoll zeroed in on what he sees as key issues.

“The home shortage and affordable home options are high on everybody's list,” Driscoll said. “Also, I want to look at the Santa Fe corridor — not just what the Sterling Ranch buildout will mean, but how should we develop that stretch? How do we enhance or parlay what we did with Breckenridge Brewery to create a place businesses want to move to?”

Driscoll is an account executive for the Paramount Residential Mortgage Group and a member of the Colorado Mortgage Lenders Association. He is also treasurer of the Colorado Association of Mortgage Professionals and a member of St. James Presbyterian Church.

Driscoll was born in Chicago, raised in Ohio, and has a degree from St. Bonaventure University in upstate New York. He has lived in Colorado since 1985 and in Littleton since 2000.

Driscoll celebrated his 25th wedding anniversary last week, and has three grown daughters, all of whom graduated from Heritage High School.
