Vote Freda Miklin for Greenwood Village City Council District 1
As ballots arrive this week, it is good to know that Greenwood Village residents in District 1 have an outstanding City Council candidate in Freda Miklin. Freda has lived and raised her family in our community for more than 25 years. Just living here wasn’t enough though. She got involved by volunteering on her homeowner association board then on Greenwood Village’s Board of Adjustments and, currently, on Greenwood Village’s Planning and Zoning Commission. Freda’s care and concern for Greenwood Village is apparent. She studies the issues, listens carefully and shows respect for citizens on positions that are important to them. In addition to her knowledge of Greenwood Village, her experience in municipal finance, law and operations makes her the ideal person to represent District 1 and our Village.
Freda will ensure that the financial position of the Village remains strong, that the outstanding services we enjoy and appreciate will continue and that the beauty of our parks and trails will be protected. Vote for Freda Miklin for Greenwood Village City Council District 1.

Vote Miklin and Lasley for Greenwood Village City Council District 1
I endorse Freda Miklin and Henny Lasley as the best suited to serve the residents of Greenwood Village District 1. Miklin and Lasley, both strong civic and community leaders, provide a highly balanced, complementary style to address the unique needs of District 1 and the entire Village. Miklin brings 20 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of our great city, and Lasley brings 20 years of community, policy and board leadership experience.
It has been a rewarding experience to serve as your City Councilwoman for these past eight years. I wholeheartedly believe Miklin and Lasley will continue our long-standing traditions and strong representation of our citizens today and in the years to come.

the residents of Greenwood Village District 1 to cast their votes for Freda
Freda is a long-time resident of Greenwood Village. She is an amazingly
fair, intelligent and well informed candidate who has served in a variety of
positions in the City of Greenwood Village government, including 11 years

We live in rural Greenwood Village and appreciate that Freda values our
natural resources in the Village, including the High Line Trail and open
space. Her view of the rural area of District 1 is that “it is a treasure
not to be disturbed or dismantled ever”, and as a current member of the
Greenwood Village Planning and Zoning Committee, she stood with the
community when it came time to vote on the issue of whether or not to allow
an automobile access over the high line trail as part of the proposed
Harrison Oaks development. Over the past 15 years of Freda’s service to the
community, we have had the opportunity on numerous occasions to watch Freda
in action. She does her homework and possesses a unique ability to
understand the issues presented. She makes sound decisions and communicates
her opinions in an educated and respectful manner.

Vote Miklin for Greenwood City Council
I realize that we have an election coming up shortly and there is one candidate, Freda Miklin, I would like to voice my support for. I have known Freda for more than 20 years and worked with her on The Preserve HOA Board. Her background as a CPA and her related financial skills in helping direct the budgeting and finance process of this large HOA proved most valuable. Equally impressive was her personal involvement in the affairs of The Preserve as it related to the growth of Greenwood Village and its commitment for being the best-governed city in the metropolitan area. We would be well served for her being elected and bringing those skills to the Greenwood Village City Council.
Freda Miklin for Greenwood Village City Council District 1
As a 20 plus year resident of Greenwood Village, I urge all voters in District 1 to vote for Freda Miklin. Freda has been a long time neighbor who, along with her husband Jerry, have raised a wonderful family and also volunteered and participated in many county, city, school district and HOA committees and activities. Her knowledge of the community is second to none and she is one of the smartest people I know, who can accomplish great things. Freda is my “go to” person for updates on current issues. A true consensus builder who will work tirelessly to benefit the residents of Greenwood Village.

Greenwood Village would benefit by having Freda Miklin on City Council
During the past 8 1/2 years of owning a home in The Preserve, I have had the great pleasure of getting to know Freda Miklin. She has taken an active part in our HOA meetings and our community. At our HOA meetings, I have been impressed with her keen intellect, in understanding the budgetary and financial goals our community. Furthermore, with her acuity of mind, she is able to understand the interpersonal dynamics of the citizens. She has always been fair minded, assertive and decisive.
In my opinion, Freda Miklin would be a superb choice for Greenwood Village City Council District One. The City of Greenwood Village would benefit greatly from having Freda in that position.”

Miklin is right person for District 1
I would like to endorse the candidate Freda Miklin for City Council in my home District 1. I am a resident and daily user of the High Line Canal trail system. Freda has been really helpful in getting info and participating in the recent debate over Harrison Oaks project. I think she is interested in keeping the rural character of Greenwood Village, while listening to the concerns of all citizens. She has had lots of experience in city politics and would make a valuable council member.
