Kevin Spencer moved to Lone Tree about five years ago, after deciding it was a great place to raise his young son, Nathaniel, and said he is running for Lone Tree City Council because he wants to watch Lone Tree grow and help ensure the city maintains its feeling of community and continues to be a good place to raise a family.
Spencer is currently serving his second term as vice chair of the Lone Tree Planning Commission.
“I've been involved with the city essentially since the day we moved here,” said Spencer. “I've always been involved, but not to this extent. Lone Tree is just such a wonderful city and when you look at the history and where the city is going, especially when you have young children, you almost can't not get involved. You want to see it grow and it's such a great place to raise a family, and knowing my son is being raised and being part of this community is very motivating to take part.”
Born and raised in Indiana, Spencer attended Indiana University where earned a B.A. in political science. After graduating college, he went to work for a third-party administrator in Los Angeles, then spent the first decade of his career in the insurance market, before becoming a partner in a start-up production company in Atlanta. Spencer classifies himself as a business executive, and has been involved on many levels, including experience in the health care field.
“I think my executive experience, on many levels, makes me a natural choice for the city council,” said Spencer. “I have a lot of experience with business strategy and growth, and I think that makes me a good candidate to serve on the council.”
Spencer has been married for 19 years to his wife Leann, and they have a son, Nathaniel, 9. Spencer said they chose to have a child later in life so they would have more time to spend with him, and they spend a lot of their free time accompanying Nathaniel to various extracurricular activities.
“We like to golf, ski, hike and go to concerts," Spencer said. "Part of having a child later in life, honestly, is because I wanted to make sure I had a lot of time to spend with my family. Many of my career choices, such as consulting, allows me to spend time with my son.”
He added: “The main reason for running for city council is I want to give back to the community and ensure that Lone Tree continues to be one of the most desirable places to live, work and play,” said Spencer. “I think having a strong council with mentorship for those younger generations will be a benefit to the future.”
