Longmont- Jonathan Singer announced today his candidacy for Colorado House District 11.  The election will be held this November 6th 2012.  Singer filed his papers with the Secretary of State last week.

"Everyday, I fight for working families in our community, and I've seen first hand how Colorado's families are hurting” said Singer.

“I want to serve in the state legislature to make sure we get working families back to work.” Singer continued.

"I have spent sixteen years working with children, the elderly and families in crisis across the Front Range, including folks right here in Longmont.  Businesses are struggling and I have seen families bear the brunt of these hard times."  Singer until 2008 worked at Denver’s Office of Economic Development helping to connect employers with parents in need of jobs.  

Mr. Singer is currently a social worker with Boulder County helping children and families. He noted "One of the best ways to protect families and children is to make sure that parents have access to good jobs.  I believe that small and local business have the innovation to  drive our economic engine.  I will make sure that Colorado takes every opportunity bring good new jobs into our state.  I will work to preserve public education, and make sure that our government can be more efficient in these tough times.

Longmont Mayor and business owner Dennis Coombs stated "Jonathan is a thoughtful candidate who will put people first. I have no question that his leadership is much needed in the state house. On Planning and Zoning, Jonathan has worked  to bring jobs to Longmont by listening to all sides and making the best possible decision for our community."

3rd Generation Longmont resident and educator Amy Mann noted that “Jonathan is articulate and can relate to anybody.  I trust that he’s not going to fight for just me, he’s going to fight for all of us.” In addition to his current work, Singer has spent the last decade volunteering for many community boards. He currently serves on the Longmont Planning and Zoning Commission. Previously, he served on mumerous boards including  the Colorado State University Drug Task Force and the Boulder Public Library.  He has also worked on behalf of youth, helping create a Youth Center for teens in Boulder in the late 1990s and advise the Boulder Public Library on teen programming.
