Freda Miklin | Greenwood Village

Political Endorsements

Freda was elected to City Council after two decades of volunteering on her HOA Board, public school PTCO Board, and the Greenwood Village Board of Adjustments and Planning and Zoning Commission. In her first term, she continued to demonstrate her steadfast dedication to her community and to her constituents including securing funding for over $1 million in road improvements in District 1 and working for the preservation of the Highline Canal, a treasured asset in District 1. She has been recognized by her fellow Council members and elected officials in other cities and the county, as a leader who understands complex financial issues and works effectively with others to accomplish projects that will benefit Greenwood Village residents. I strongly recommend Freda’s re-election to Greenwood Village City Council District 1.

I wholeheartedly endorse Freda Miklin for re-election to Greenwood Village City Council District 1. She has proven herself to be an approachable and responsible representative of the people of District 1. She responds to residents and listens to them. Freda Miklin is a person of action, who uses good judgment and carefully researches the issues and proposals that come before City Council.

Freda Miklin is a dedicated, knowledgeable, open-door resource for the community. She epitomizes the term Representative. I endorse Freda Miklin for re-election to the Greenwood Village City Council, District 1.

I had the pleasure of starting my service on the GV Board of Adjustments and Appeals under Freda’s chairmanship and learned from everything she did until we lost her due to term limits. Freda did an outstanding job. Gifted with high intellect and excellent insight, she has a remarkable ability to absorb information and focus public debate on the key issues. Freda presided with fairness and understanding of different perspectives. She was somehow able to elevate difficult work to a higher level by uniting participants behind common goals. Freda is an excellent choice for city council. With a great understanding of municipal finance and city government after working for the cities of Chicago and Denver, she has been a true “find,” working in the volunteer trenches for Greenwood Village. I endorse her x10.

GV City Council Member District 2 2011 – Present

I am pleased to endorse Freda Miklin for reelection to the City Council of Greenwood Village, Colorado in 2017. I have had occasion to work with Councilwoman Miklin as a board member for a homeowners association in Greenwood Village and have found her to be very responsive and helpful. She has assisted in establishing communications with appropriate city staff members and has worked diligently to find solutions to issues brought to her attention by the association. She has always been willing to spend the time necessary to work with association board members, city staff and outside parties to craft creative and effective solutions to difficult problems.
Outside of my involvement with the homeowners association, I have found Councilwoman Miklin to be knowledgeable, interested and involved in all of the issues confronting Greenwood Village and surrounding communities. She works very well with other council members and city staff and is an effective communicator and advocate for the citizens she represents. The residents of District One are well served and fortunate to have a dedicated and devoted representative to the Greenwood Village City Council.

Freda has been an active Greenwood Village resident since 1992 and in that time has served on The Preserve HOA, GV Board of Adjustments and Appeals ( serving as chair for five years ) served on the GV Board of Planning and Zoning, and currently is serving her first term as a District 1 City Councilwoman. Some of Freda’s accomplishments during her first term on City Council revolve around the Capital Improvement Projects along Holly Street. Freda initiated the first project to remove the edge medians at three intersections on Holly and add back in new designs and bike lanes that are now safe, attractive and ADA accessible. Freda also initiated the project at the corner of Holly and Belleview that added a right turn lane for cars headed northbound on Holly to East bound Belleview that will improve traffic flow and safety, particularly for pedestrians and students at that intersection. Freda has also been working with GV/Preserve neighbors since 2015 addressing the issues of the overgrown Greenwood Gulch wetlands. Since 1998, the lack of maintenance has resulted in significant deposition of sediment which causes dangerous flooding and damage to our public trails and personal property. A major project was begun this year and will continue into 2018/2019 to mitigate those issues.

Freda has a strong background in municipal finance, municipal law and city operations which are all key characteristics which led to her success in serving on GV City Council in her first term. She will take those characteristics, plus all she has learned these last two years serving our City, into her next term on GV City Council and Freda has my 100 % support as she seeks re-election from District 1 this Fall.

The role of an elected Greenwood Village City Council member is to listen, understand and represent the needs and interests of their constituents. Freda Miklin completes this role better than anyone I have observed in elected office. Through her sole efforts, District 1 residents finally have a platform to raise the serious issue of Greenwood Gulch drainage with Village staff. When you consider what you want in an elected Council Member, remember the tremendous support Freda has provided her residents. I know she will receive your support.

Freda Miklin, in her position as District One City Council Representative, has been very responsive to the needs we have had in my Belleview Village neighborhood.

As a longtime resident with deep experience in local government service, Freda Miklin cares about the City of Greenwood Village. She is easily accessible, works hard for us on City Council, and is knowledgeable and experienced in how the City of Greenwood Village works. Freda is dedicated to working on local issues, to keeping citizens informed, and to making things happen. Because of Freda’s representation, the City of Greenwood Village evaluated citizens’ flooding concerns along Greenwood Gulch, identified issues with the Gulch, and developed a plan to correct deficiencies.

I’m endorsing Councilwoman Miklin for a second term as my District 1 council person. As an appointee on Planning and Zoning for District 1, I’ve had the privilege of learning about “all things Greenwood Village” from Councilwoman Miklin. Her 15- year plus years of volunteerism on boards serving our village demonstrates that she is a dedicated public servant with a deep of institutional knowledge and commitment.

Councilwoman Miklin is smart, honest and logical when evaluating policy that comes before our City Council. She listens and learns from our dedicated city staff, fellow council members and most of all, each of you.

We heartily recommend Freda Miklin for re-election to the Greenwood Village City Council because she listens to her constituents. She listens because she cares about our concerns and is willing to work hard to do whatever it takes to alleviate those concerns.
She knows the history of our village. She knows what has worked well in the past and we know that she will work very hard to make an even better future for Greenwood Village and for us citizens.

Our family moved to Colorado 15 years ago and settled in Greenwood Village. I have been active in neighborhood HOA and other community volunteer positions throughout most of that time.

Almost from the beginning I met Freda Miklin, who was always a part of neighborhood discussions. She would often be nearly the only person at the annual HOA meeting of the Preserve, well prepared with questions and comments aimed to make our neighborhood the best it could be.

As I became more involved, Freda spent time mentoring me and helping me understand how to achieve the best results for our neighborhood. This is really no surprise when you look back at the many years of volunteer work that Freda has put into the community. Freda is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge with respect to nearly any topic that comes up with respect to city government where she has volunteered tirelessly for most of the last 20 years.

Freda’s work for the community has made life for everybody in Greenwood Village better. She does not focus on politics. Her efforts are solely channeled into making life better for all her constituents in Greenwood Village.

With Freda Miklin working on our behalf at city hall we can all pass the time knowing that she will always have our best interests at heart. I cannot think of a better candidate to reelect as City Council member for District 1 than Freda Miklin.

Glenn E. Malloy
Planning and Zoning Commissioner
Greenwood Village District 1

I worked with Freda on the Greenwood Village Planning and Zoning Commission for many years. Over that time, it became clear Freda cared deeply about Greenwood Village, had the ability to understand the issues, and would absolutely take a stand to do what she felt was right. I respect those qualities and believe we residents of Greenwood Village deserve city council members who are willing to dedicate the time, have the experience and ability to understand, and will stand up for what is right for our community.

Steve Burns
Planning and Zoning Commissioner
Greenwood Village District 4

I emphatically endorse Freda Miklin for City Council. No candidate can bring the depth and breadth of experience with the issues facing the Village as Freda. Aside from her vast experience, Freda is bright, honest, ethical and fair, and she is always looking out for the best interest of this community. I would enjoy the opportunity to work with Freda to help shape the Village for the future.
