Highlands Ranch is a community of over 100,000 people, and we're represented by our Metro District for municipal services like road maintenance, open space management, utilities, and community programs. The Metro District also runs the Highlands Ranch mansion.
With a budget of over $70 million and more than 80 full- or part-time employees, the Metro District controls a considerable amount of our tax dollars and interests. We elect seven people to its Board of Directors, and in 2020 there are three seats up for election representing three different regions of the Metro District. Voters choose a candidate for each seat regardless of where they live, meaning you can vote for candidates in all three seats even though you may not live in their region.
Here you can learn about our candidates (Barrett, Paula, and Michelle), their policies, and how you can help elect them to the HRMD Board of Directors!
