Common Sense on Council

Catherine Nakai believes in the importance of preserving Woodland Park’s heritage while balancing future needs of citizens, businesses and the whole of the community. Catherine is a 20-year resident of Woodland Park and grew up in Colorado Springs in a military family.

She attended both the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and San Jose City College. Catherine started out working in the high-tech customer service and accounting industry, before moving into her current career of 20+ years, as an Integrated Circuit Layout Designer.

Prior to her appointment to the Woodland Park City Council in July 2021 she served on Woodland Park’s Board of Adjustment, as an alternate, regular board member, and vice chairmanShe was also the chairman of the Transportation and Drainage Committee for the 2021 Woodland Park Comprehensive Plan. She even volunteered her time to learn more about local government by being a part of the 2020 Woodland Park Citizen’s Academy.

Catherine is fiscally conservative, believing in paying down the community’s debt as soon as possible, but not at the expense of city or education services. Protecting the environment and the Second Amendment are also important to her. The backbone of her belief is that reasonable persons can work together to find the best solution. Respect, above all, is a must.
