Councilor Patty Evans

District 2

I’m honored to have the privilege of representing District 2 on your City Council. I’ve lived in downtown Golden for 15 years, and I have served on the Planning Commission for nearly 10 years. I look forward to bringing that experience and perspective to Council.

Throughout the election season, I spent a lot of time knocking on doors and talking to people. In all my conversations, I heard common themes—a desire to maintain our small-town character, concerns about the impact of visitors, and overall, an optimism about Golden’s future. I’m embracing that optimism in my new role as Councilor.

Golden has lots of opportunities and challenges in front of us, both short- and long-term. We can tackle big-picture questions around how our community grows and our values for Golden, while also being responsive to short-term issues that affect the day-to-day lives of our residents. I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and digging in.

We are a better community when we’re united and see the best in each other. I’m hopeful for our future and excited to represent District 2 on Council. Please feel free to reach out to me at
