Littleton Voters Select Mayor, New Council Members, and Support Investment in the Community
Voters overwhelmingly gave their support to solving the revenue crisis in the Capital Projects Fund (CPF) by approving Issue 3A with 58.9 percent voting “yes.”
“I can’t thank the council, staff, and voters enough for their work on the funding fix,” said City Manager Mark Relph. “It is never easy to ask for a tax increase but I credit voters for understanding the urgency of the need. The city hasn’t asked for a tax increase in 50 years and has budgeted wisely over time. But voters understood without a new source of revenue, the CPF would run out of money in 2025. The majority of voters agreed on how important it is to take care of our physical assets,” Relph added.
The Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson County Clerk and Recorders provided unofficial results for the 2021 Littleton municipal election (as of 10:30 a.m.). The figures are not final until after the Board of Canvass of each county meets in approximately two weeks.
For the first time in Littleton’s history, registered voters determined who will serve as mayor. In the past, the mayor and mayor pro tem were selected by the council from among the seated members. In November 2020, voters approved a ballot question giving citizens the opportunity to make that decision.
A reception will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 16 to welcome the new council members and recognize those who served. The new council members will be sworn in by Presiding Judge Ethan Feldman who will administer the oath of office. The new council will then elect the mayor pro tem to serve for the next two years.
