Laura Weinberg named next Golden mayor


The Nov. 5 election was close, but the edge in votes went the way of Laura Weinberg, in the contest to see who would be Golden's next mayor.

She earned just more than 51% of the votes, to defeat Don Cameron for the mayor seat.

Aside from recognizing him through the work he has done for Golden’s Planning Commission, Cameron said he is glad that he was able to additionally reach out to thousands of people during his campaign.

“Golden will be in good hands, no matter who wins,” he said.

Weinberg said that she is looking forward to continuing to build partnerships and welcome all  voices from the community.

“I want to provide the leadership for our community so we can strategically and collaboratively tackle the tough issues that we face in the coming years," Weinberg said. 

JJ Trout won the city council District 1 race with 57.8% of the vote against Kim Brock’s 41.9%.

"I love Golden and that doesn't change," Brock said.  "I will (continue) to work with my community to ensure our voices are heard ."

Councilmember Casey Brown ran unopposed to remain as the District 2 representative, garnering more than 2,514 votes.
