Elect Henny Lasley for GV City Council
As a long time member of this community, I am endorsing Henny Lasley in her race to serve as a Greenwood Village City Council member for District. Henny will bring balance to the council. She has been a long time civic volunteer involved in our schools, the arts, and public policy issues around protecting kids from the harms of commercialized marijuana. Her volunteerism is an integral part of her life. Henny was a small business owner and corporate executive before stepping off the career path to raise her family. Her well-rounded background and grassroots experience will serve Greenwood Village well.
Henny is an idea person, a team player and a person of impeccable integrity. On a more personal note, my wife Sherry and I have worked directly with Henny and have watched her in action. She values the opinions of all and Greenwood Village citizens will benefit from her leadership when Henny is elected as one of the two District 1 councilmembers.

Miklin for Greenwood Village District 1 City Council
I urge fellow Greenwood Village voters to support a very strong candidate, Freda Miklin, for City Council District 1. Freda has a combined 15 years of experience on GV boards and committees, in addition to her professional CPA background. Freda is a mother of five who brings family values and concerns to the forefront. What impresses me most about Freda is her common sense approach to city matters with an eye for objectivity and thorough analysis. This is refreshing and effective. I urge voters to consider Freda for GV District 1 City Council.
Freda Miklin for Greenwood Village City Council District 1
I am writing today to recommend Freda Miklin for City Council and to ask you to strongly consider giving her your vote in the upcoming election. Freda had a career in the private sector with a big eight accounting firm. She spent over a decade gaining public experience in the financial departments of both the City of Chicago and the City and County of Denver. During her 24-year residence in Greenwood Village, Freda has immersed herself in community leadership at the neighborhood, county and village levels. She currently holds positions on the Arapahoe County Citizens Review Commission and the Greenwood Village Planning and Zoning Commission. There is no doubt Freda has the knowledge and experience I look for in a councilperson. And, her community activism has helped forge the relationships necessary to ensure effective governance of our community.
I am a sitting board member of the Preserve HOA and know Freda as a friend, neighbor and colleague. Perhaps most important in my decision to support her candidacy is that she is an extremely honest, pragmatic and considerate person. As my representative, on issues that affect me and my community, I am confident that Freda will consider the appropriate factors and make the right decisions for the right reasons.

Elect Candace Moon for Centennial City Council
In the election for Centennial City Council in District 1 this year, we have the opportunity to keep the positive energy and positive image we have in Centennial if we elect Candace Moon. Candace has the experience, dedication, ethics and rapport with councilmembers and staff to help continue the progress we have had in our city and add to it.
Candace Moon, Candidate for District 1, an Air Force veteran, former federal law enforcement officer and law enforcement instructor, a trained certified mediator, currently employed with the Department of Homeland Security, has worked continuously to make this city a better place to live, work and play. From the beginning of the effort to form Centennial, Candace has served to make our city a successful reality.
I have served on councils that were divided between those who wanted the city to progress and serve the citizens and those who worked for the seemingly radical partisan objective of making the city fail. The “anti-Centennial, naysaying” council member left in the last election but she has her clone running in this election. I am asking that we elect Candace Moon who will help move this city forward, not take us backwards.
Candace Moon is the candidate we need to elect. We have a cohesive, well functioning council doing great things for our city and we need to keep the good momentum going. We need to continue our city’s progress toward greatness.
Candace Moon has the experience and credentials to work hard and smart, to listen to citizens, work in committees and on budgets, but most importantly she can and will do all this with energy, ethics and for the greater good. A strong individual, Candace Moon, has the knowhow and rapport to get the job done for us by collaborating with others, in our interest, for the best outcome.
I urge you to vote for Candace Moon for District 1 Centennial City Council. She is the right person to continue our city’s progress for us.

Council Member District 1
George Lantz is the best
There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that George Lantz is the most well qualified candidate for Greenwood Village City Council to ever run for that office. George has a record of serving on GV commissions that goes back to 1995, during which time he has been Chairman of both Planning & Zoning and the Board of Appeals. At the same time, he was also president of the Huntington Acres HOA, serving his neighborhood faithfully for 19 years. That is a record of civic service that few can match! Beyond these years of service to the city, George is also a very successful businessman, devoted husband and father of two wonderful sons.
I have personally known George for about 15 years and am very excited that he has finally decided to run for City Council. George has a calm and thoughtful approach to all matters, resulting in decisions that are well thought out and rational. He is the perfect candidate to fill the vacancy created by the term limits of both current District 3 councilmen. The city will see a total of five new councilmen out of eight seats after this election, so it is critical that George Lantz, will all of his experience, is one of them!
Greenwood Village City Councilman, District 4, 2003-2011
Elect Henny Lasley for GV District 1
Greenwood Village District 1 has an obvious choice this year for City Council, the civic-minded candidate, Henny Lasley.
Henny’s passionate work with SMART Colorado (working to protect youth as marijuana becomes increasingly available) has given her experience dealing with stakeholders, legislators, regulatory agencies and municipalities. The process of listening and working to make a difference in her community is why she decided to run for our City Council. In addition, Henny has served as co-chair for the board of trustees of Colorado Ballet demonstrating her commitment to a team approach when dealing with a management team, trustees and donors.
For 17 years Henny has appreciated all Greenwood Village has to offer – rural, suburban, business centric and service oriented. She will have a common sense approach to evaluating new projects that may add to our tax base while balancing impact to our community. She will have a compassionate ear for listening to our citizens and helping solve our issues.
Henny has been a caring and reliable neighbor to our family. She will be a great City Council member and neighbor to you too. Please vote for Henny Lasley for District 1.

Vote George Lantz for GV District 3
George Lantz has been a resident of Greenwood Village for 26 years and has generously donated much of his spare time in a volunteer capacity to the Village. He served as a Greenwood Village City Council-appointed representative for more than 20 years; a member of the Board of Adjustment and Appeals for eight years; and most recently, chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission for the last 12 years. With his lead, the Planning and Zoning Commission made a significant revision to the Koelbel property development at Yosemite and Caley streets in order to protect single-family dwellings in an important Village area.
George has also been the president of the homeowner’s association in Huntington Acres, a position he has held for 16 years. In that capacity, he has provided strong leadership and direction. He organizes and supports community events and most critical, his relationship with the Greenwood Village government staff has been instrumental in preserving and protecting our community.
George is a humble, unassuming person. He has achieved great business success in telecommunications, and at this stage of his life, he is committed to continuing to contribute to the Greenwood Village community. He is a dedicated citizen, a talented and respected leader, and is outstanding at building consensus. George is truly the best choice for Greenwood Village City Council, District 3, as evidenced by the unparalled variety and depth of his involvement in Village activities.

Vote no on ALD 4A tax increase
Our library district, due to three past mill levy increases, is one of the best-funded libraries in the entire state. Our present mill is 4.79, including .59 for refunds and abatements. This gives them an operating budget for 2015 of more than $20 million. They serve 253,500 residents. These figures came from the state library.
Their website, yes for Arapahoe libraries, only has nice things on it as to why they need this money and what they will do with it. You have to wonder why this information is not on there. I don’t because I have known how well funded this library is for many years and tried to do my best to ensure the taxpayers got the benefit of what they are paying for. I have failed, as the library boards for the 51 districts across the state are appointed. That means they can do what they like with the taxes and fees they get and they do not have to answer to any voters. That’s why they feel they can run a huge tax increase past the voters for the fourth time as there is no organized opposition to this while at the same time failing to ensure their own residents including some of the poorest in the state have access to the library that they are paying for.
Contrast Denver Public Library, which has about 28 libraries for their 600,000 plus residents, plus all the traffic they get downtown and they do this with less than $41.5 million (2014).
There is now and with your help, we can defeat this. Tell your neighbors, your friends, etc., who live in ALD as to why this is such a bad idea. If you want flyers to pass out at the grocery stores, I can give you one to copy as well.

Elect Miklin for GV District 1
I am writing to urge your support of the candidacy of Freda Miklin for the Greenwood Village City Council, District 1. I have had the opportunity to observe Freda during meetings in Greenwood Village and believe she has the necessary skills to be a great council member. These skills include being an excellent and patient listener, processing and analyzing the input she receives and, when speaking, stating her understanding and concerns in a clear and concise manner. These attributes are the best measures of someone who will contribute effectively to our city government.
We live in a beautiful community but one that would also benefit greatly from Freda’s membership on the Greenwood Village City Council. I urge your support when you receive your mail ballot.
Vote Lantz for GV District 3
George Lantz has been my neighbor since 1989. We have worked together on many issues, both within the neighborhood and also within the larger Greenwood Village area. George has been on the Huntington Acres HOA board for 19 years and has been president of the HOA for 16 years. I first appointed him to Board of Adjustments and Appeals in 1994. He served with distinction on that board until 2007. He then went on the Greenwood Village Planning and Zoning for the last 10 years and has been Chair of P&Z for the past three years. In addition to his community involvement, George is a very successful businessman who was a manager in large corporations and also was an owner/executive of his own company until his retirement a few years ago.
I am quite impressed with George as a neighbor, businessman, community leader and family man. George is an extremely well qualified candidate for District 3 council. His commitment to this district and city is outstanding. He is exceptionally well versed in the intricacies of city government. He has both natural and refined executive leadership skills. He is a man who has in depth knowledge of issues and the background on the issues. He brings excellent communication and decision-making skills to every agenda. It is not often that we have the chance to elect someone with this skill set to council. Let’s take full advantage of this opportunity.
