Meet the new mayor of Manitou Springs

Manitou Springs, Colo. — When you walk into Manitou Springs City Hall and turn into the Mayor’s office, you’ll come across a new face. Nicole Nicoletta was sworn in as Mayor of Manitou Springs this week.

“It was awesome,” said Nicoletta. “It just felt amazing and wonderful and it just kept hitting me more and more each day.”

Nicoletta has lived in Manitou Springs for seven years with two years on council. She’s also a mother to her 10-year-old daughter.

“My favorite thing is walking into town with my daughter,” said Nicoletta. “Everybody knows her and it’s super comfortable.”

Officially moved into her new office, it’s time to get down to business and working on things she campaigned for.

“Definitely preventing what could be a huge problem so flood and fire mitigation,” said Nicoletta.

Considering the past, including the devastating floods of 2013, Nicoletta said she’ll be ready if it ever happens again.

“Ive got enough training in sociology and mental and behavioral health that we prepare for crisis, and I’m a mom so I can handle things on the spur of the moment,” said Nicoletta.

Nicoletta wants residents to know she will be available to hear their ideas too.

“For anyone who wants to come forward with ideas even if it is constructive criticism, bring it forward,” said Nicoletta.
