Commissioner Nancy A Doty Announces Candidacy

Commissioner Nancy A. Doty, Arapahoe County Commissioner for District 1, announces her candidacy for State Senate District 26!


Nancy A. Doty, Arapahoe County Commissioner for District 1, has announced her candidacy for State Senate District 26. That seat is currently held by Linda Newell who will be term limited after completing her current term in 2016. Doty’s term as commissioner ends at the same time.

Ms. Doty said, “I want the citizens of District 26 to be represented by a person who shares their important values such as improving the economy, retaining jobs and reducing regulatory roadblocks affecting economic growth, working with law enforcement to improve safety in schools and public venues, and limiting unfunded mandates by the State and Federal Governments.”

As a resident of Littleton and Arapahoe County, Ms. Doty has established a reputation of protecting the taxpayer dollars, fighting unfunded mandates, and working with Chambers of Commerce for economic development at the County.

Jane Norton, former Lt. Governor, and Bill Armstrong, current President of Colorado Christian University and former U.S. Senator, are both excited about Nancy’s candidacy. They believe she is the right person at the right time to secure this seat for Arapahoe County. Adding that the State legislature has gone too far in taking rights away from citizens and changing election laws that are contrary to public opinion– “Nancy’s principles and values will serve the district well.” First elected in 2004 by 72% of the voters through a Recall Election, Ms. Doty, a Republican, has served as the Chief Election Official for Arapahoe County until March 2013 after being elected as County Commissioner. As Commissioner, Ms. Doty has served on various boards and committees including: Centennial Airport Authority, Arapahoe County Water and Waste Water Authority, Southeast Metro Storm Water Authority, South Metro Chamber of Commerce, and Economic Development Committees with both Colorado Counties, Inc. and the National Association of Colorado Counties.

Ms. Doty is a Certified Public Accountant and served as the Chief Financial Officer for the Governor’s Office from 2000-2004. She was awarded the Women Leader of Excellence Award on behalf of the Denver Women’s Society of CPA’s and completed the 50 for Colorado Leadership Program through the University of Colorado. Her background includes finance, auditing and management, as well as professional experience in restaurant, medical, non-profit, and small business. She has served on several community non-profit boards.

She has two grown children, Debbie and Bob, and two grandchildren, Devon and Camryn. She resides with her husband, Wayne Brady, in Littleton.
