Jeffco Election Updates

School Board and Municipality Elections are coming up this November in Jeffco. We need to have strong Conservative voices on all of these boards below. Don’t let people tell you that Republicans can’t win these elections because we can. Please don’t think you have to change your party affiliation to think that is the only way you will win because that is not correct. Jeffco Republicans need to stand strong and be proud. Many Republicans changed their affiliation only to lose the race because they did just that.

Please look at the opportunities below and be the one that steps up to one of these positions. All these positions/races below have a Democrat that has already announced, but no Republican. The Jefferson County Republican party will help Republicans that run for these important races. After I researched all of these cities, we only have 10 Republicans in all of these 100+ elected positions. We can’t complain about how our cities are full of crime, drugs, growth, fee increases (taxes), and inflation, if we don’t step up and make a difference. Now is the time… Let’s take back our cities and school board!!!

Jeffco School Board

We do not have a Republican that has stood up to become a candidate for either position that is up for election this year.

Board Members – Jeffco Public Schools

City Council and Board/Commissions vacancies

There are 3 City Council races up for election. The Mayor, District 1 J.J. Trout, and District 2 Casey Brown. The Mayor, Laura Weinburg will be seeking re-election (Not Republican) and the two City Council positions will not be running again. Casey Brown is termed out and J.J. Trout will not be seeking re-election. So, we have 3 positions that Republicans can step and run for in Golden.

Golden Board/Commission Vacancy – there is one open for the Golden Fire Pension Board. Please call the clerks office for an application and apply.


There are elections for each Ward 1-5, and City Mayor. Currently, we only have a Republican running for Mayor, Don Burkhart, against Wendy Strom, a strong democrat, and democrats running for the other 5 wards. At this point Lakewood will be controlled by Democrats if we do not get some Conservative Republican Candidates in place.

Boards & Commissions | Jefferson County, CO (

I have contacted Conifer and Evergreen, but no response. They are a bit different as they do not have true city offices. They are called chambers.

And if I have left something off, it was not intentional. Please let us know and we will add it.

A couple other things about elections. I am in the process of collecting information for those who wish to be an election judge and/or poll watcher for the November 2023 election.
