“I’ve known Darrell Watson since he was the first person to reach out to me when I was a new City Councilwoman to talk about affordable housing. He has been a passionate champion for sustainable housing and shows it by his tireless volunteerism as then president of the Whittier neighborhood association in Council District 9 and now Chairman of the Housing Stability Strategic Advisors among many other of his community roles. Darrell Watson is an exceptional leader in our city, with expertise and wide experience in city and community building.”

Hon. Joyce Foster – Former Denver City Council President

“As a former President of Denver City Council and Colorado State Senator, I understand the necessity for transparency, accountability and strong leadership from our elected leaders. Darrell Watson is the candidate we can trust to bring those values to city council. He has exactly what it takes to lead Denver and the residents of District 9 forward, and he will work tirelessly to make life better for those in our city. The ability to work with other council members and the Mayor’s office constructively on behalf of your constituents is one of the most essential opportunities for this role. Darrell Watson can and will do just that. I am proud to endorse him for Denver City Council District 9.”
