Rita Lewis has my endorsement for the Council City seat in District 8. A native Denverite, who grew up in the city’s northeast neighborhoods, Rita understands of District ‘s history as well as its current and futuristic needs. As a longtime resident myself, I have long admired Rita’s personal integrity and her track record. She has always been highly visible serving as an attorney, former president of the Denver NAACP, sorority member, and so many other civic efforts since high school. Rita Lewis will be the ideal council person—she has exactly what it takes to adequately represent the people of District 8.
