As the candidate filing deadline approaches, Lone Tree's three council incumbents look poised to be reelected without opposition.
Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet and councilmembers Cathie Brunnick (District 2) and Wynne Shaw (District 1) are the only ones to have picked up a petition to circulate to be reelected to their posts through 2024. Lone Tree's municipal election is scheduled for May 5. If no other interested candidates submit a petition for candidacy — signed by 25 residents in their respective districts — the election will be canceled. Millet, Brunnick and Shaw would be reappointed.
Petitions are due Feb. 24. Petitions are available at the city clerk's office during business hours until then.
Millet would serve her second term as mayor. Millet was elected to council in 2008, spending the last four as mayor pro tem. Before that, Millet served on the planning commission from 2004-08. Millet was elected mayor in 2016.
The three were on council through the opening of the Leaf Pedestrian Bridge in 2018 and the completion of the Southeast Rail Extension in 2019. Millet was a finalist to take over for RTD's retiring general manager and CEO Dave Genova. Millet currently serves as vice chair of the Metro Mayor's Caucus, a committee of 40 mayors from the Denver area.
Council has been vocal about supporting public-private partnerships with special districts and business partners to curb costs of city infrastructure improvements and development. Millet said she hopes to continue “to execute on the vision of a complete community” and “to ensure the growth of our community enhances the quality of what we already have.”
