Caleb Moss runs for Town Council

Town of Golden: Moss, Caleb - Council Candidate... Caleb Moss' self profile.

  • Oct. 14, 2014 6:00 p.m.

Caleb Moss is running for town council.

Hello Golden, you sweet little mountain town, you.  My name is Caleb Moss and I am putting my name on the ballot for re-election as councillor.  I have served two terms (six years) in this capacity and am interested in continuing to work hard in moving our community forward.

For those of you unfamiliar with me, I have called this place home for the last 4o+ years.  I have taught in the school system.  I have hit baseballs very far.  I have sold books.  Lots of books.  Books are neat. I have raised children.  I have developed life long relationships.  I have worked as a family therapist.  I have sat as a board chair for several non-profit community groups including Kicking Horse Culture.  I have a graduate degree in Leadership and Systems Theory.  I like to laugh at myself and other funny things.  I am tireless in my commitment to intellectual rigor when addressing complex issues.  I am honest to a fault.  I welcome and encourage respectful debate.  I have a depth of understanding in solving higher level problems and welcome challenging ideas.

Without a doubt, I love this community.

With love, comes commitment, comes sacrifice, comes personal investment, comes heart on sleeve , comes sweat on brow. Hey man,  love is not simply roses and sweet poetry. It be all in with this guy.  Huggie smooches Golden. I heart you.

Years ago, I made the decision that getting involved and being the difference that shapes and shifts change was a far better course than either disengaging or lobbing negativity from the sidelines.  I chose to devote much of my time to making this place I live even more awesome than it already is.  Local political decision making is seldom black and white.  You are  right when you are wrong and wrong when you are right. I have learned, and continue to learn, that local politics and leadership is more than just title or position.  It is, at the end of the day, about fostering relationships and engaging in decision making with a mind that is open and a self  that is courageous and willing to be put forth in serving not only ones current community but the community of the future.

Anybody can tear things down and criticism is easy, but those who know how to build and walk a proactive talk are whom I embrace and what I strive to represent.  I continue to pride myself on being a citizen of this Town of Opportunity; a place where the villains are conformity and orthodoxy and the ticket to entry is a free mind and a willingness to dream.
