VOTER ENGAGEMENT EFFORTS EXPANDED WITH CITY CLERK AND RECORDER AND TEAM
In anticipation of the Denver Mayoral Election, Agudah of Colorado met with Hon. Clerk and Recorder Paul Lopez and his team to discuss collaboration in our voter engagement efforts. It was a highly successful meeting as Clerk Lopez's entire team learned about cultural challenges specific to voting and Agudah gained insight into the resources the team provides. The meeting concluded with a fascinating tour of the ballot-counting process, a laborious and mostly human-fueled effort. We look forward to continuing our collaboration to best serve the Jewish community.

JUNE 6 DENVER MAYORAL RUN-OFF ELECTION
The Municipal Election on April 4 concluded with two mayoral candidates facing off in the run-off election. The candidate who wins a majority of votes in the run-off will serve as the next Mayor of Denver.

Historically, an incumbent mayor has the biggest chance to win re-election and with a three-term limit of four years each, the incoming mayor may very well serve for the next twelve years.
