Campaign announcement

May 4, 2018

Thank you for your support for my campaign. It is with gratitude that I make the announcement that I am withdrawing my candidacy for RTD Director. With profound changes in my personal and professional life, now is not the right time for me to be in this race.


I remain committed to public service. This has been a life-changing experience, and I believe more strongly than ever that RTD should be the most equitable transit system in the nation. You will still see me fighting for this cause.


While this decision was difficult, it has been made easier knowing that Shontel Lewis is in the race. I support Shontel’s candidacy, and encourage you to check out her website, www.shontelforrtd.com. I believe that Shontel is the right person for this office.


You can reach me at perkins.ja@gmail.com or 970.222.7587. 


My sincere thanks,
Jamie
