Hi! My name is Jaime Bower. I’m running for MCA District 1 Delegate because I believe we can do better to live out the promises of the “Green Book”, Stapleton’s Development Plan. Our neighborhood is thriving as a beautiful, walkable, environmentally sustainable neighborhood with a system of well-maintained open spaces, parks, and pools for residents; however, we fall short when it comes to the development’s guiding principle of social equity; socio-economic and racial diversity, inclusivity, and the creation of strong ties between us and surrounding neighborhoods.
I believe that renaming our community is a big step forward, towards creating the welcoming space intended. We need to elect MCA District Delegates and Board members that exhibit the diverse intentions of the “Green Book”. We need to ensure that our community spaces, events, and programming are providing opportunities for people of all ages, incomes, and ethnic groups.
I grew up in a military family and have lived many places. I’ve been a resident of East Bridge since 2012, and a resident of Stapleton for a total of 11 years. I especially enjoy gardening, reading, painting, and traveling. Professionally, I have worked in many fields and held high level government clearance. Most recently have worked in the public school of our neighborhood. I live with my husband and two daughters (*10, 9).
As your MCA district 1 delegate, I will use my passion for social equity and [other positive personal attributes/skills] to serve my neighbors. I ask for your support and promise to listen to your ideas for and concerns about our neighborhood, encouraging your involvement. I am eager to take on this role!

About

Representing a wide range of experience and reasons for running, this slate of eight candidates favor removing from the development, the name that honors former Denver Mayor Benjamin F. Stapleton, a Ku Klux Klan member supported by the hate group in the 1920s. District Delegates meet monthly to advise the MCA Board, to elect new MCA Board members, and to approve or veto the budget. The MCA Board has legal authority to change the community name. Board elections will occur later this year.


These candidates include a high school honor student, a medical researcher, community organizer, lawyer, creative director for a small business, and more. Rename St*pleton for All will be campaigning full force for these candidates because we share the values of a welcoming, inclusive community, and these candidates represent a diversity of age, gender, race and ethnicity.  We are getting back to the book.


Rename St*pleton for All will be conducting a people-to-people, door-to-door, campaign to educate the community about MCA election processes and to prepare them to vote by proxy or in person at the MCA Annual meeting, November 14th at 6:30 pm at The Cube, 8371 Northfield Blvd (E. 49th Ave.).
