Former District Attorney for the 2nd Judicial District, Democrat
“As District Attorney for Denver from 2005-2017 and a longtime prosecutor, there is nothing more important than seeking justice for victims. DNA evidence has been an essential part of achieving justice. I won the first case in Denver involving DNA evidence and pioneered the Denver Cold Case Project that uses DNA to solve Cold Cases. John Kellner is someone who has done great work using DNA to solve Cold Cases and has shown he has the experience needed to seek justice for victims as District Attorney.”
Former US Attorney for Colorado

“As a fellow Marine and former elected District Attorney, I can tell you that John is the right person to lead the fight for public safety as District Attorney for the 18th Judicial District.”
