"I ask you to join me in supporting Dave DeMott for Westminster City Council. Dave is running for office for the right reasons, he loves Westminster and cares deeply about the future of our City. I continue to be impressed with the dedication he has to our community, as he and his family spend countless hours volunteering their time to make Westminster a better place. The reality is, Dave and I don’t agree on every issue, we come from different political parties. But these municipal elections aren’t about who’s a Democrat or Republican. These elections are about who has a vision for the future of our City; about who will be a servant leader to the people of Westminster. If you’re frustrated with government telling you rather than listening to you, then join me in supporting Dave DeMott for City Council."

Chris Dittman Former Mayor Pro Tem and Councilor of the City of Westminster

"I am supporting Dave for the Westminster City Council for several reasons:

1. He has lived in Westminster almost all of his life.
2. He truly demonstrates that he cares about this city not whether he is a D or R.
3. He is involved in citizen committees, attends council meetings, and not afraid to ask the "tough questions".
4. He has earned a shot at council - he is honest, hard working, and has his priorities straight."

"After a much-needed vacation with good friends and time to reflect, it's time to get down to brass tacks. This fall will see new leadership for my city. I will be supporting a candidate of integrity, community vision, and family. I will be supporting a candidate who is not looking at his or her next office and seeing my home as nothing more than a stepping stone. I will be supporting a candidate who I can agree to disagree with on a serious issue but in the end, when the issue is decided will lay down arms and support the sovereign choice of the people. I will be supporting a candidate who is not about the next selfie opportunity. I will support a candidate who is not going to pour hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money into a privately owned mall while the rest of the city's streets crumble. I will support a candidate who will not spring a neighborhood changing public infrastructure project on the neighborhood and only give the impacted neighbors a choice in trees. This fall I will be supporting no incumbent to be returned to office. We need a new direction. This fall I will be supporting David DeMott as a true choice for the City of Westminster."

"David is an amazing man, he worked over the last four years in a Community College offering what he knows to teach in a profession where it is more rewarding seeing your students success then financial gain, David has an amazing family has been there for them volunteering on the PTA.  But the best way to describe David is he is always there for his neighbors.  Working to help them in any way possible, this is something uncommon in this day and I know electing David he will work to help all of us”

Mike and Cyndy Ellermeier Westminster Citizens

We fully support his commitment to improve Westminster to make it a viable and prosperous community. David listens to the people and their concerns and would make our voices heard. We truly believe the entire community would benefit by electing David DeMott to the Westminster City Council. "

Judy Fahrenholtz, M.A.

"As an Early Childhood Specialist I have served with Dave in several capacities. One being the Director of his children's preschool Working with Dave in partnership for his children's first school experience was very rewarding. Dave's involvement was both admired and appreciated. I gained a glimpse of Dave's passion for his community. I watched the ripples of Dave's involvement in the high profile case of Jessica Ridgeway. Dave served as the President of Witt Elementary PARTners during this time. Dave demonstrated integrity in all aspects of serving the community during a time of tragedy. Dave collaborated with multiple agencies making decisions which impacted many lives considering the current needs and future needs. The outcomes of Dave's hours of involvement making decisions will be relevant years ahead. Dave is not one to micromanage or delegate his duties to others. He rolls his sleeves up and invests his time, talent and treasure before inviting or expecting other's to join a cause."

Darrell Fuller Westminster Citizen

"We, the citizens of the city of Westminster,  need and deserve a strong, fiscally sound voice representing us.  I believe Dave DeMott is that voice and I look forward to his service as a member of our city council.  Therefore I strongly support his candidacy and urge and all responsible citizens of our city to support and vote for Dave DeMott."

President and CEO of The Alternative Board in Westminster

As a business owner in Westminster, I was delighted to hear that Mr. David DeMott will be running for City Council. I had the great fortunate profit to be able to work with Dave DeMott for several years. Here’s what I know: he is bright, organized, strategic, and knows how to listen. I have seen Dave in numerous situations where even with huge obstacles and challenges he was still able to work through them and get the job done to everyone’s satisfaction. Our organization is an international organization. The reason I state this is that it requires myself and my organization to work with multiple cultures, value systems and personal visions. This is not an easy landscape to navigate, but I have seen Mr. DeMott work with many different people with many different visions, many of which were in direct conflict with each other and he was still capable of delivering an excellent result to all. It is very rare for me to give an endorsement but I feel as a taxpayer in the Westminster area, there are very few people I could imagine who would be as committed and successful as David DeMott. I strongly encourage everyone to get to know Mr. DeMott and what he stands for, and I am confident you will find an individual that you would say you were proud to have as your City Councilman. Mr. DeMott gets my highest recommendation and endorsement.
