Help Cristin Welle Hughes get elected to MCA District 4 Delegate

by Team Cristin - District 4: South End

We're supporting: Vote for A Change by Rename St*pleton For All

Candidate(s) : Cristin Welle Hughes


Campaign has ended.


Hello! I’ve lived in District 4 for several years and have really enjoyed being a part of this neighborhood and community. As a mom of 2 growing boys, I want our neighborhood to continue to grow into the friendly, inclusive and diverse community that supports all our children and families. I’ll work to make sure that our community welcomes and reflects the broad range of cultures, races and faces from all walks of life that make Denver such a vibrant place to live. As a scientist and professor at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, I will use my passion for education and social justice to strength ties with our surrounding neighborhoods and institutions. I would like to hear your ideas and concerns, and most importantly, encourage us to be involved and invested in our neighborhood.


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.).
