Steve Labossiere - President (term expires 2018)
Steve Labossiere Email Steve Labossiere

Steve Labossiere comes from a military family. He was born in Spain and lived in Europe, the Middle East and throughout the United States. Steve earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Florida. Early in his career, Steve and his wife, Resa, moved to Luxembourg to work and experience European life. After three years in Luxembourg, Steve and Resa moved to Hungary, where Steve became a founding partner of Deloitte Central Europe (DCE), a firm spanning 17 countries, which grew to over 1,600 professionals in less than 5 years. Steve was the CFO/COO of DCE Hungary, a business exceeding $45 million in annual revenue and 350 staff.

As an audit and consulting partner, Steve worked with all levels of government, large banks and companies to successfully transition them to Western business, professional and government best practices. He successfully negotiated complicated settlements, resolved disputes among government organizations and oversaw the design and execution of various business, professional and government operational reorganizations. Steve also directed significant business development, corporate governance, risk management and cost-cutting programs in dynamic and unique business environments. Working in Europe, Steve learned to listen carefully, not take anything at face value, and understand issues before making decisions.

Since retiring, Steve actively manages a personal investment portfolio. He attributes his success in business to personal sacrifice, hard work and dedication. He is exceptionally motivated and results-oriented, with strong communication, analytic, and interpersonal skills. He has extensive experience in running businesses, motivating people and succeeding in challenging environments. He is a proven leader who values integrity and fiscal conservatism. He thrives on solving complex problems.

In May 2010, despite a five way race, the people of Castle Pines North elected Steve Labossiere to the Metropolitan District Board of Directors -- by an overwhelming majority. Subsequently, his Board colleagues unanimously elected Steve as President and have re-elected him as Board President each year since. Largely through Steve's thoughtful and tireless Board leadership, attention to detail, analytic nature, and relentless commitment to informing and engaging the people of Castle Pines, the Metropolitan District is moving the community steadily toward a sustainable water future.

As Castle Pines North Metropolitan District President, Steve's top priorities include:
  1. Continue to acquire renewable water for the people of Castle Pines, and thereby help secure our community's future, property values and quality of life;
  2. Complete Phase 2 of the InterConnect Pipeline Project as quickly and cost effectively as possible;
  3. Continue pre-paying the historic legacy debt that the Metropolitan District inherited, and thereby continue saving the people of Castle Pines money. (Each year since 2006, Metropolitan District Directors have chosen to pre-pay the community's historic "legacy debt," and in so doing, saved property owners in the Metropolitan District over $2 million dollars in interest and fees.);
  4. Maintain the District's prized Standard & Poor's AA and Moody's A1 bond ratings;
  5. Secure water storage rights in Chatfield Reservoir;
  6. Participate in a new regional water treatment facility;
  7. Continue to efficiently process and distribute clean, safe, reliable drinking and irrigation water to the people of Castle Pines; and
  8. Improve constituent communications.

Steve and Resa have lived in Forest Park, Castle Pines North since 2004. They participate in many community and civic activities both in Castle Pines and throughout the Douglas County community. They love hiking, camping, hunting and fly-fishing with their two British Labrador Retrievers.

Keith Dodd - Vice President (term expires 2016)
Keith Dodd Email Keith Dodd

Keith has a combined 16 years of experience as Systems Engineer and Program Manager with Northrop Grumman. He comes to the Metropolitan District Board having served in, and been honorably discharged from, the United States Navy and having earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from Colorado Technical University.

Keith moved to the Forest Park neighborhood in 2003, has served on the Forest Park HOA Board, and until recently served as Treasurer of the Castle Pines North Master Association Board of Directors.

When asked why he sought to fill the vacancy, Keith responded: "The opportunity to work with highly successful, private-sector business people and entrepreneurs on the Board, combined with their focus on securing renewable water at the lowest possible cost for ratepayers was a motivating factor. The fact that there is so much public distrust of expansive government bureaucracies and unnecessary spending was also a consideration. I believe metropolitan districts offer a more fiscally responsible alternative to conventional government models. Metropolitan Districts like ours provide only the most basic and essential services at a relatively low cost to ratepayers. Working to preserve and strengthen that model in my own community strikes me as worthy public service."

Upon his official appointment and swearing in during its March 2011 meeting, the Board promptly elected Keith as its Treasurer, a position which he holds today.

Keith and his wife, Dana Hall Dodd, live with their children in the BriarCliff neighborhood.

Eric Anderssen - Treasurer (term expires 2018)
Eric Anderssen Email Eric Anderssen

Eric has been a homeowner association president and, as a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), has been active in the CFA Society of Colorado. When asked why he chose to run for the Board, Eric responded: “Ive joined the Metro District Board with a desire to contribute to the well-being of our community. We need to prudently manage our resources so that our community continues to be a place that we love to call home for generations to come. The activities and responsibilities of the Metro District are an integral part of such a goal”.

Stephen Allen - Director (term expires 2016)
Stephen Allen Email Stephen Allen

Stephen Allen has lived in the City of Castle Pines KnightsBridge neighborhood since 2003. He and his wife of 10 years, Jill, have a eight-year-old daughter who attends the Cherry Hills Christian School in Highlands Ranch.

Until recently, Stephen worked as a commercial litigation and creditor's rights attorney at the law firm of Silverman/Borenstein. He has particular expertise in sophisticated regulatory issues, including compliance with HIPAA, the FDCPA, and FCC regulation, as well as extensive experience at the appellate level. Active in community affairs, Stephen serves on the Public Safety Advisory Committee of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

When asked about what he believes is the Metropolitan District's greatest challenge, Director Allen responds: "Recognizing that much of Colorado is again experiencing below-average precipitation, it seems evident that regional population and water consumption trajectories are on a collision course with shrinking ground water supplies in the Denver Basin Aquifer System. I believe the Metropolitan District must complete Phase 2 of the InterConnect Pipeline Project and secure more renewable water as quickly and efficiently as possible. Doing this will help mitigate cost increases for the people of Castle Pines, especially over the long term." Allen adds, "We should all thank the new City Council for beginning the process of withdrawing the costly and divisive Dissolution of the Metropolitan District; their action enables us to focus on our core mission."

A native of California, Stephen Allen earned his Juris Doctorate Degree and a Certificate of Governmental Affairs from the McGeorge School of Law in 1998. He graduated from San Jose State University in 1990 with a B.A. in Political Science and a Minor in Communication Studies.
