Our fight is not over yet, though. The runoff elections take place in Denver on June, 6th, 2023, and we’re going to keep showing up to get our candidates across the finish line!

As a reminder, each of these candidates went through 105 member-led candidate interviews and have demonstrated their commitment to working families across our Denver communities. They understand the challenges faced by working people in our city and are committed to building on the victories we’ve fought so hard to achieve as a union. 

The following SEIU Local 105 endorsed candidates are headed to the runoff, and they need OUR help:

  • ✅ Mike Johnston, Denver Mayor
  • ✅ Flor Alvidrez, Denver City Council District 7
  • Shontel Lewis, Denver City Council District 8
  • Candi CdeBaca, Denver City Council District 9
  • ✅ Chris Hinds, Denver City Council District 10

From raising wages to fighting for affordable housing, these candidates have shown a commitment to improving the lives of working families in Denver. Your vote has the power to shape the future of our city, and it is critical that we use it to elect leaders who will fight for us.
