The Arapahoe County House District 41 Republican Vacancy Committee unanimously selected Lynn Myers of Aurora, as the GOP candidate to face incumbent Rep. Jovan Melton, D-Aurora, in November. She replaces Jean Weinstein who dropped out of the campaign in September.
Myers brings decades of public service and community leadership the race that she says will offer HD 41 residents the choice for a fresh face at the legislature who can effectively advocate to solve the area’s most pressing issues.
“Having lived and worked in Aurora for 40 years, I just could not sit on the sidelines anymore,” Myers said. “The citizens of HD 41 deserve a voice in the legislature that can work across the aisle and solve problems. That is how I approached my work as an Arapahoe County Commissioner, where we found ways to build consensus across the public and private sectors to build road, parks and libraries. And that is what I want to bring to this race.”
Myers, served on the Arapahoe County Commission from 2000-2007 with two terms as chair, and has been a champion of serving the region’s transportation infrastructure needs. She currently serves as senior vice president at the Denver South Economic Partnership where she works to expand economic opportunities throughout the south metro region. She has been recognized nationally as one of the 50 Top Economic Developers of 2014 by Consultants Connects and received the Economic Development Council of Colorado top award in 2015.
“I have spent the last 10 years working to create and bring new high-paying jobs to Colorado and it is time to take that experience to the state legislature,” Myers said. “House District 41 is a great place to live but we also have a lot of work to do.”
