Mary Blegen, current HD29 Secretary, has been involved in Democratic issues and actions in: Iowa, California and now Colorado. She was a PCP in Arapahoe county, delegate to county and state assemblies from Arapahoe and now Jefferson Counties. As a retired nursing professor, she has been particularly interested in health care issues and preventing gun violence. She worked with Colorado Ceasefire from 2013 to 2019 when Colorado finally passed the Extreme Risk Protection Order. Knowing that the passage of bills to limit gun possession and ownership depends on which of the two political parties are in the majority, she is now spending her efforts with the Jeffco dems.
