Denver, CO – In response to the recent resignation of former RTD Board of Directors District A representative Kate Williams, Denver Mayor Mike Johnston has nominated Jaime Lewis to fill the vacancy. Lewis, a seasoned transit advisor for the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, has a wealth of experience advocating for the rights of people with disabilities.
District A, one of RTD’s most populated public transportation service areas, encompasses nearly all downtown Denver’s business district and a significant portion of southeast Denver County. This area is vital to the city’s transportation network, featuring key routes such as the free 16th Street Mall ride, the RTD train business district loop, and numerous bus lines.
Pending approval from the Denver City Council, Lewis will serve as the RTD District A representative until January 2025. In addition to her role with the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, Lewis is actively involved in various transportation-focused organizations, including the Denver Streets Partnership, the Denver Regional Mobility and Access Council, and the Mayor’s Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
With Lewis’s nomination, Mayor Johnston aims to ensure robust representation for District A and continue advancing accessibility and mobility initiatives across Metro Denver. Stay tuned for updates as Lewis prepares to assume her new RTD Board of Directors responsibilities.
