MEET IDRIS 

New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community

Hello!

My name is Idris Keith and I am a citizen of Arapahoe County - District 3.  I am a husband, a father, an attorney and an active member in my church.  My wife and I have 2 wonderful children and, as all parents, we are concerned about their future.

I am running for the Arapahoe County Commission in District 3 because this is the greatest place to live in the United States of America.  And, needless to say, District 3 deserves leadership that matches the greatness of her residents.  

If elected, I will focus every degree of mind and spirit that I possess to:

  • Public safety which includes ensuring that all citizens feel safe in their homes, in their neighborhoods and that threats to persons and property are addressed quickly and efficiently;

  • Working with developers and citizens to guarantee that growth and expansion in District 3 are handled responsibly without impacting property values and the well-earned equity in your homes; and

  • Creating an environment of freedom to invest and generate revenue that would unleash our county's true economic potential.

These are but a few of my core beliefs.  I intend to meet every voter in District 3 and I welcome the opportunity to earn your vote.  If you believe as I believe in the ideals listed above, I hope you will join us in this effort to restore District 3 to a young, vibrant, entrepreneurial place atop of Colorado's economy.

Why?

  • I am distinguished from the current leadership in the following ways:

    • I am the only candidate in this race with private sector experience.

    • I am the only candidate who has helped create small businesses and assist small businesses in bidding on contracts to perform work with governmental entities.

    • I am the only candidate who opposed a $464 million property tax hike (Ballot Measure 1A) which was championed by current leadership (even though he says he's "tough on tax and fee increases").

    • I am the only candidate committed to paving dirt roads on the eastern plains and plowing snow off roads and highway on the eastern plains.  

      • The current leadership has ignored this problem.​​​

    • I am the only candidate advocating for responsible growth that will take into account the water shortage on the eastern plains.

    • I am the only candidate willing to listen to constituents about their desires and their opposition to job-killing policies as proposed by current leadership.

    • I am the only candidate who has served as a Probation Officer which affords valuable experience in the area of public safety.

    • I am the only candidate who has served as an Administrative Hearings Officer presiding over Medicaid and Unemployment hearings which directly relates to Colorado PEAK and our county Department of Human Services, as well as providing an understanding of unemployment issues during the COVID emergency.  

    • I am, as a Business Attorney, the only candidate prepared to tackle the issue of economic recovery post-COVID and committed to developing public/private partnerships to spur economic growth. 

      • I am also the only candidate who recognizes that raising taxes during a time of high unemployment is a recipe for economic disaster.​​​

    • Ultimately, one's experiences are fine, but we must ask whether those experiences are relevant and whether those experiences have served Arapahoe County's best interests over the last 4 years. 

    • QUITE SIMPLY, ARE YOU BETTER OFF TODAY THAN YOU WERE 4 YEARS AGO?

    • IS YOUR BUSINESS BETTER OFF TODAY THAN IT WAS 4 YEARS AGO?

    • NOTWITHSTANDING COVID, IS TRAFFIC BETTER TODAY THAN IT WAS 4 YEARS AGO?

    • If you believe that it is time to implement commonsense economic policies, I ask for your vote on November 3, or before!
