Rachel Zenzinger has announced that she is going to run for Arvada City Council District 1 in 2009. Don Allard currently holds that seat and is retiring. Rachel has said she’s thought of running for the past 3 years.
“Outside of raising my children, I get the most satisfaction from any work that sets the community on the path toward improvement,” she said. “I believe I can do the most good for Arvada in a City Council seat, and I pledge to pour my energies into tackling issues such as transportation, health, environment, safety, and a strong economic base.”
Zenzinger has been an active volunteer all over Arvada from Transportation Committee in Arvada to her daughter’s preschool. Rachel is active in politics too, serving on Bob Frie’s recent campaign and the North Jeffco Parks and Recreation District Rally for Recreation campaign to increase the mill levy that had not been increased in about 50 years.
The question is: Is she right for the job?
