I can think of no one better qualified for a City Council position for District 8 in Denver than Rita Lewis. Her experience as the Executive Director of the Denver Metro Fair Housing Center gives great credibility to her desire to create change in the housing issues of the diverse Park Hill neighborhood. Rita has the know how to address affordability, access, and discrimination for those most impacted by the challenging Denver housing market. As a caregiver for my 92-year-old father, I am especially impressed with her interest in giving caregivers a “living wage” as one valuable use of the large marijuana tax revenue our state incurs. Rita’s leadership background as both an attorney and past president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) give her unparalleled qualifications for the political office she is seeking. Being a native and resident of Park Hill gives Rita the heart and compassion to connect with and serve her constituents of District 8.
