Michael Anderson wins District 2 seat

Anderson earned 64 percent of votes


Michael T. Anderson took 64 percent of the vote May 8 to win the District 2 seat on the Lone Tree City Council, according to preliminary voting results.

Results will be verified and made official on May 17.

Anderson defeated Kevin Spencer, who received 36 percent of the 393 votes cast.

“Lone Tree is a great place to live, to work, to shop and to play," Anderson said. "The future of Lone Tree will be challenging as the city moves forward with development plans for Ridgegate East on the east side of I-25. I look forward to working with residents, city council, the city staff and our community partners to ensure that we maintain the quality of life for all residents as the city continues to grow.”

Anderson, 73, who has lived in Lone Tree for 15 years, had highlighted growth in RidgeGate East and needs of the senior population as areas of focus.

Retired after 32 years in business and project management in the energy industry, he is a board member for South Suburban Parks and Recreation. He and his wife Cheryl have three children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Anderson will take the seat of Mayor Pro Tem Susan Squyer, whose term ends this year.

District 1 incumbent Jay Carpenter ran unopposed for a second term. He said he will spend his next four years addressing increased traffic issues within the city and continue working with fellow councilmembers to explore creative solutions to mobility efficiency within the city and throughout the region.

Lone Tree City Council is made up of five elected members, including the mayor. Members serve staggered, four-year terms and represent one of two districts within Lone Tree, with the exception of the mayor, who serves as an at-large member.
