New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community


My name is Idris Keith and I am a citizen of Arapahoe County - District 3.  I am an attorney, a husband, a father 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 which 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.
