Adams County Treasurer – ELECT

“I fully support Chris Hinds for Denver City Council. Mr. Hinds has a stellar record of public service and advocacy for inclusive community government. Mr. Hinds has developed a spectacular skill set in policy analysis and decision-making. Although I vote in Adams County (the 3rd fastest growing county in the nation), I want Denver, our neighboring county, to have the best City Council its voters can elect, to support good governance at its edges and throughout every district. Mr. Hinds’ qualifications and commitment make him an excellent choice for that role.”

RTD Board of Directors, District E

“The challenge of being a person with a disability and running for office is that people think you’re playing a disability card. Chris Hinds has been dealt a new deck of cards, and he is going to play each one to impact the community in a constructive and meaningful manner. I wholeheartedly support Chris’s efforts in running for Denver City Council, District 10, and I hope you do too.”

Testimonials about Chris

Dan Pabon

“In my 8 years down here, I've seen many citizen advocates working on different policy issues. But I’ve never seen a citizen advocate, disabled or otherwise, work as hard as Chris Hinds for not just the disability community, but for all communities in Colorado trying to make Colorado a better place.”

Alec Garnett

“Chris Hinds is somebody who lives in my district who has been advocating on behalf of issues related to disabled parking for years and years and years. And he is really advocating in the right way. He gets to know his representatives, he attends every meeting that he possibly can, and while this really isn't the end of that fight, it really does symbolize how someone in the community can do a lot to represent a bunch of Coloradans.”

Joe Salazar

“This guy has been a stalwart fighter here at the Capitol for years, and as (Rep. Alec Garnett) has said, that's what a citizen activist looks like, right? That's exactly how things get changed here in the state of Colorado. When you have someone working with their elected official, and working with the political process. Someone who is willing to go to people who may not necessarily have the same ideologies and still sit and talk with them and educate them.”

Paul Lundeen

“Chris, you are a remarkable person. Your humility is always visible. Your humor is usually spot on - and we know that humor from a microphone can be a challenging thing, but you have brought it multiple times and we're all grateful for that. But most of all it's the humanity that you bring to the process that we in fact are engaged in.”

Dafna Michaelson Jenet

“I have worked very closely with Chris Hinds this session on the Colorado Disability Council, and what he brought to the table was invaluable in terms of research and information and advocating for the community specifically in this area - including a life-sized sign that was created to talk about what we do around disability parking that was taken to Washington, DC I believe - that was sent there by Texas, and not us, and the word is getting around, and it is getting around because of Chris Hinds.”
