Endorsed by the Golden Good Government League for Ward 1
The GGGL Board of Directors endorses Rob Reed for the Ward 1 City Council seat. Each Ward 1 candidate is thoughtful and would champion preservation of downtown character, but we feel that Rob Reed brings a greater depth of familiarity and experience with the issues Golden faces and with city government in general. Rob has an understanding of growth concerns based on long-term residence in Golden and direct involvement in downtown development issues. Rob believes that more density could lead to loss of community character and that neighborhoods should have a strong voice in density increase issues.
