Jefferson County is governed by a three-member board, the Board of County Commissioners. To better get to know your county commissioners, we created series of videos in which each commissioner tells us why he or she chose to serve as county commissioner and highlights some of the great things in the county.
Our first video in the series features Commissioner Libby Szabo (YouTube). In her video, she tells us about living here in Jeffco and how important places like the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport is to our community.
Commissioner Libby Szabo represents commissioner district one. She was elected to her first four-year term in November of 2016. She currently serves as the chair of the board and the Law Enforcement Authority.
Prior to becoming county commissioner, Szabo was Assistant Minority Leader of the Colorado House of Representatives. She was the first Latina female to be elected to a House leadership position. She was serving her third term as a state legislator when she was chosen by the Republican Party Vacancy Committee to fill an unexpired county commissioner's term in 2015.
You can learn more about Commissioner Szabo, on her commissioner web page.
