Jennifer R. George announces her candidacy for Colorado House of Representatives District 18. George, an attorney, a longtime Colorado Springs resident and an active community trustee, feels compelled to run for the seat. “I am worried about the future of District 18 and our state,” said George. “I am running because our district deserves someone to represent us in Denver whose singular focus is the economic health of Colorado.” She will strive to find ways to make government more efficient and smaller and to create certainty for businesses and families.
George is committed to the Colorado Springs community. During this economic recession, Jennifer led the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center as Chair of its Board of Trustees. She is also a Board Member of Goodwill Industries of Colorado Springs.
George earned her law degree, with honors, from the University of Texas at Austin, and during her 15-year career she represented employers while working as an employment law attorney and a human resources consultant. She is a fiscal conservative and a registered Republican.
George, 44, has been married to her husband, Jeff, for 19 years. As a mother of two daughters, ages 12 and 14, she has taken a leadership role as a volunteer within Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 for the past ten years.
George said, “I look forward to meeting voters in District 18 and hearing about their concerns. I am committed to fighting for all of us in Denver.” The newly redrawn House District 18 encompasses downtown Colorado Springs, Hillside, Knob Hill, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, Old North End, Patty Jewett, Skyway, and other neighborhoods.
Jennifer will attend the El Paso County GOP Open House at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, January 10, at the County GOP Headquarters, 205 Sutton Lane, to help celebrate the launch of the local GOP’s new website.
