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 third video in the series features Commissioner Lesley Dahlkemper (YouTube). She talks about her experience as a commissioner, the importance of our budget process and our libraries
Commissioner Lesley Dahlkemper was elected to her first term in November 2018 and represents commissioner district three. She has thirty years of combined experience in strategic communications, community engagement, nonprofit leadership, public policy and journalism. Most recently, she served as the Vice President of Strategic Engagement and Communications for the Colorado Education Initiative (CEI), providing vision and strategy as a member of its executive leadership team across the organization's five initiatives, forty-five employees and $14 million budget.
