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.

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.”

"I unequivocally support John Kellner in the upcoming election for the next District Attorney in the 18th Judicial District. Most voters have little idea of the breadth and depth of the duties of a Colorado District Attorney. Public safety is the #1 job of government at all levels.

And John Kellner is the candidate who will deliver that safety to our residents."
