Mayor Joyce Jay
Wheat Ridge has been my home for the past 35 years. During that time, I have been enjoying the city's incredible location and raised my daughter, Ginger who graduated from Wheat Ridge High School.
Politics was never my intended career, but instead, I followed a long, enjoyable profession as a commercial photographer. As many
I sold the photography business, retired, joined the Wheat Ridge Cultural Commission, and served on City Council from 2009-2013 before being elected as Mayor. Currently, I serve on the DRCOG Board, Wheat Ridge Business District Board, Wheat Ridge Business Association Board, the Urban Draining and Flood Control District Board as well as the Metro Mayor's Caucus.
I believe the Mayor should be an active agent seeking amenities that improve the lives of citizens and at the same time instill a sense of solidity,
