Lisa Smith

For Arvada City Council At-Large 2021


I believe in building a successful community through smart and effective policy for all Arvadans!

Dear Arvadans,

I have spent my life serving others, through military service, social work, disaster response, and volunteerism. I'm running for City Council for the same reason I volunteered to serve my country — to give back to my community.

I will take my ground-level experience, strong communication, and problem solving skills to serve and represent the people of Arvada towards smart city strategies, specifically around community development and infrastructure.

I will continue to listen and engage all Arvadans to create logical and responsible policies towards an economically thriving community for all.

It is time for me to continue my service through Arvada City Council At Large! Let's continue to improve lives for everyone in our community, together!

Sincerely, Lisa Smith
