Good Government League (GGGL),
an organization committed to fostering good representative
government for all Golden citizens.
The City of Golden held its general elections on
first Tuesday of November (that was November 3, 2015).
The Golden City Council candidates who won
Mayor – Marjorie Sloan
District 1 – Saoirse Charis-Graves
District 2 – Casey Brown
This General Election was coordinated with
Jefferson County Elections and was a mail ballot that was mailed
the week of October 12th.
To have participated in the election you must
have been a registered voter in the City of Golden. To have
gotten a mail ballot you must have be registered by October
26th, but you could have registered and voted by going to the
County Courthouse right up to the day of the election itself,
GGGL interviewed each of the eight candidates
running for the three offices. We very much appreciated that
each expressed an eagerness to meet with us and discuss their
respective candidacies. We also expressed our appreciation for
their willingness to give up their time and energy in their
efforts at running for each of the offices.
“The Golden City Council candidates were:
Mayor – Caleb J. Barcus, Chris Darr and Marjorie
District 1 – Saoirse Charis-Graves and Paul
District 2 – Casey Brown, Mikey Sheridan and
We want to extend our congratulations to the
candidates that won their respective elections and also take
this opportunity once again to thank all of the candidates that
chose to run in this election. We recognize that it is big
commitment and frequently results in lost time with family and
friends in other activities.
Our interviews revealed an important aspect that
we found in candidates this time around, and that is the fact
they were well intentioned, thoughtful and talented. It is
certainly these qualities that are important to the City’s
efforts in making our town the place that it is. Therefore it is
our hope that each will remain seriously involved with Golden
and its many opportunities for individuals to serve.
As a final note, GGGL took the position of
supporting the recalling of John Newkirk, Julie Williams
and Ken Witt, which came about as a result of the wishes of the
Jefferson County electorate in the election held on this past
