Centennial City Councilmember Doris Truhlar has announced she will seek a second term representing the city’s west-central District 2.
“I have been an excellent councilwoman for the past four years and look forward to continuing to serve Centennial,” she said. “When I ran four years ago, I promised not to raise taxes. I have kept that promise. Not only that, but Centennial’s sales tax is among the lowest for cities our size at only 2.5 percent, and I will fight to keep it low.”
Truhlar, an attorney, has lived in Centennial’s Palos Verdes since 1983.
The candidate touted Centennial’s new fiber-optic service, which provides fast internet service to Centennial residents and businesses by partnering with private industry.
Fiber, she said, has become an essential service.
“Centennial is now the most connected city in the United States with 96 percent of our citizens being hooked up, either at work or home,” the councilmember said.
Truhlar has also pushed for the undergrounding of what she describes as unsafe and unsightly utility lines on East Orchard Road.
“This has been a three-plus-years effort, with much credit due to the efforts of the civic association,” she said. “These projects tie directly to improving our community and all of our property values.”
Among other responsibilities, Truhlar represents Centennial on the Denver Regional Council of Governments, the intergovernmental organization that establishes guidelines, sets policies and allocates funds for regional transportation, growth and development, among other issues.
Truhlar encourages residents to call her at 720-934-4645 or 303-771-5102.
“If needed, please leave a message and I will call back as soon as I can,” she said.
All-mail Election Day is Nov. 7. Councilmembers are limited to two four-year terms.
