Arvada's voice for you!

It's Time for Something New

About Lauren

The past four years have been the best adventure of my life. It has been my honor to bring constituent-oriented, representation-focused, positive leadership to the Arvada City Council. And I hope to continue being that voice prioritizing Arvadans, leading with inclusivity, and fostering collaboration to deliver solutions for current and future generations.

I believe in the power of community. That’s why I will be a Mayor IN the community.

I not only intend to keep Arvada a place where I want to raise my daughter, but also a place where my daughter will want to raise her daughter.

The problem with politics is that everyone thinks in election cycle terms. My goal is to help change that locally. Arvada doesn’t need to be thinking in four-year terms. We need to be thinking in forty-year terms. Our future is built today by the investments we make in ourselves.

Lauren Simpson

I am running for Mayor because there are issues where we simply can’t afford to wait. Climate resiliency, disaster preparedness, and the housing affordability crisis are all acute problems we must deal with NOW. But we need to do it right. With science and data, guided by values, Arvada will be the best place to live, work and play both now and into the future.

There are two major lines of thought when it comes to elected leadership: Those that think the voters elected them to make decisions based on their own judgements and beliefs. And those that know that the voters elected them to listen and to represent the people’s will. I am very much in that latter camp, and I have the voting record to prove it.

Chip in for Arvada's future!

It's time for a new voice in Arvada — one that brings inclusive, collaborative leadership, and a fresh perspective.

Lauren Simpson is that voice, but we can only win as a team — donate today to elect Lauren as our next Mayor!

JeffCo Women Set to Lead the Way

As seen in the Colorado Sun:

"Simpson is as striking for confidence as she is for her ability to engage constituents. She gave a personal and compelling stump speech that would put some of the top politicos in the state to shame. She was at her best when she expressed how the unhoused epidemic had personally affected her life through a family member. She was authentic and empathetic at the same time."
