As the 2020 General Election approaches, Democrats of House District 29 will not only vote in the presidential primary by ballot, but also choose the candidate that will represent them in the House District.
The 2020 House District 29 Caucus and Jefferson County Democratic Party Assembly are meetings open to all Democrats in our House District. One of the most important functions of the Democrats at these meetings will be to decide on which House District 29 candidates will make the June 2020 ballot. Current House District 29 Representative Tracy Kraft-Tharp is term limited. As we seek to keep this seat in Democratic Party control, several candidates have expressed interest. As each candidate ramps up their campaign, we will be listing their information as well as appearances in town halls, forums, and other opportunities to meet them during the primary season.

Lindsey has always had a passion for activism and social justice. At just eight years old, she fought to include girls in the all-boys recess soccer game. While in college, she canvassed door-to-door to promote voter registration. Today, she is an attorney specializing in juvenile and family law.
Lindsey grew up in Loveland, playing soccer for the local league. While a high school student, she led local service projects through the National Honors Society, and ran track and played basketball on the varsity teams. Growing up, Loveland was still a small community, and Lindsey came to appreciate how common values and goals shape an individual, and our societies.For college, Lindsey attended the University of Northern Iowa on a soccer scholarship, and then the University of Denver for law school. During this time, she interned for former Congressman Bruce Braley in the House of Representatives, former Senator Tom Harkin on the Health, Education, Labor, and Pension Committee investigating for-profit colleges, and clerked for the White House Domestic Policy under the Obama Administration in Washington, DC.
After passing the Colorado bar exam, Lindsey started her own law firm where she is able to amplify the voices of those in need on a daily basis. She also volunteers at free legal nights for the underserved, and is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, Colorado Women’s Bar Association, American Association of Justice, and the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.
On the weekends, you can find Lindsey biking the trails in Arvada or hanging out at the Old Towne farmer’s market. Lindsey values the sense of community in this district, and she is committed to protecting that. She believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to participate in the decisions affecting us all, and will work to give everyone the ability to thrive.
