A Councilperson Who Solves Problems
In the election for Council Members for Greenwood Village I ask you to consider what is really important- Does the candidate listen and follow through to solve actual problems daily impacting us? Freda Miklin has repeated demonstrated that she listens carefully and, more importantly, works tirelessly for the residents of District 1.
Over two years ago, even before she became a member of the City Council, Freda Miklin listened to our neighborhood flooding concerns and agreed to support the need for improvements to the storm water drainage in The Preserve Reach of Greenwood Gulch. Since that time, she has worked tirelessly on this issue for our neighborhood. She opened doors for us with City staff and policymakers, enabled us to be able to participate in determining goals, reviewing preliminary designs and supported the neighbors in meetings. Without her strong support and participation in the process we would not have been successful in having the Council approve a Capital Project to begin next spring to mitigate this significant issue.
That’s how a candidate should be measured! Not by empty slogans and mindless rhetoric but by actual accomplishments!
When you add to this the improvement to traffic on Holly, concern about our young children and traffic, Freda Miklin has earned our respect and support. I wholeheartedly urge you to support her re-election to continue to make an actual difference to our Community.

Thank you, Councilmember Miklin!
As the newest District 1 appointee to Greenwood Village’s Planning and Zoning Commission, I’d like to extend my thanks to Councilwoman Freda Miklin for her guidance and leadership and offer my support for her re-election for a second term. Councilwoman Miklin was patient and spent hours mentoring me, without judgment, as I navigated the complexities of my new role.
Councilwoman Miklin has served Greenwood Village for over 20 years. She knows our wonderful Village inside and out because she has made the effort to learn it. She rolls up her sleeves every day to serve the citizens of District 1 by giving her time and energy solely for the benefit of our community. She has worked tirelessly to ensure that residents will continue to benefit from the city services we have become accustomed to receiving.

Vote for Miklin in Greenwood Village
Anyone who knows Freda Miklin knows she is a person of action. Every resident in District 1 who has ever reached out to her for help with anything got a quick response and their concerns addressed.
In two short years, she alone initiated and got completed a total, long-needed $1,000,000 fix of Holly Street, including a new right-turn lane at Belleview that has made life better and safer for every resident who uses it and the students at West Middle School.
When residents asked for her help to get Greenwood Gulch fixed, after nearly 20 years of neglect and ever-increasing floods, she worked tirelessly to make sure it happened. Because Freda was able to work in a respectful and collaborative way with city staff, other Council members and governmental agencies outside Greenwood Village, the $2 million project, funded by both Greenwood Village and outside matching funds, is budgeted and planned for 2018.
Freda Miklin has earned your vote.

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.
Vote Miklin for Greenwood District 1

Freda served on our neighborhood homeowner’s association board of directors. During her tenure on the board, she demonstrated strong business acumen, fiscal responsibility, the ability to work with all parties, never lost sight of the responsibility of leadership and the vision of the end goal.

Freda will be an outstanding council member with a strong voice for all of Greenwood Village and not just District 1.
