Jeffco sheriff candidates to speak at forum

Posted

Learn about the candidates for Jefferson County sheriff at a candidate forum Sept. 21 at the Buchanan Park Recreation Center.

Regina Marinelli and Ed Brady will answer audience questions during the 6-8 p.m. forum sponsored by Mountain Foothills Rotary and Colorado Community Media's Canyon Courier. Online viewing of the forum will not be available.

The person elected to the position will replace Sheriff Jeff Shrader, who is term-limited and cannot run again. Election Day is Nov. 8, and mail-in ballots will be sent out in mid-October. Sheriffs serve four-year terms.

“We feel this is an important transition in Jefferson County,” said Jim Rohrer with Mountain Foothills Rotary. “It’s good for all of the citizens to meet and listen to the two candidates and make a choice.”

Each candidate will be given 15 minutes for opening statements, and they then will answer questions from the audience, Rohrer said. Christopher Nims, a Rotary member, will moderate the forum.

Candidate Marinelli is a Colorado native who has pursued a career in law enforcement since middle school. She earned a degree in criminal justice and teaches. Marinelli has served in the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for 36 years and supervised every major department. Regina and her husband, Bart, live in Jefferson County.

Candidate Brady is a deputy chief with the Arvada Police Department where he has served for 28 years. He has led through the Great Recession, an officer death, officer-involved shootings, a pandemic and the current public safety crisis. His wife, Cathleen, is a principal in Jeffco Public Schools, and they have four children.
