Mayor, Three Council Members Sworn in on Nov. 27

Ward 2 Race to Be Decided on Monday, Dec. 4

The City of Northglenn swore in a mayor and three council members at the City Council meeting on Nov. 27:

• Mayor: Carol Dodge
• Ward 1: Meredith Leighty
• Ward 3: Julie Duran Mullica
• Ward 4: Jenny Willford

Dodge had previously served as Ward 1 council member for eight years, while the other three are new to council.

The winner for the Ward 2 race has yet to be decided. At last count, the race between Joyce Downing and Danielle Henry is a tie. A recount will be complete by Monday, Dec. 4. If the vote remains a tie, a victor will be chosen by drawing lots, which could be flipping a coin, drawing a name out of a hat or another method of chance.

Northglenn voters also decided four ballot measures in the Nov. 7 Election, with two passing:

• Passed: Issue 2F
Voters extended the existing 4.0 Mill Levy property tax without a sunset clause. This tax is used exclusively for road construction.

• Passed: Question 2G
Article V, Section 5.3 of the City Charter was amended so that initiative petitions must be filed within 180 days after the city gives petition forms to the petitioner’s committee.

• Not Passed: Question 2H

This would have repealed Section 8.17 of the City Charter, which would have eliminated the combined water and sewer utility fund as a charter requirement.

• Not Passed: Question 2I
This would have eliminated the Citizens’ Affairs Board.
