Councilor Johnson Announces Re-Election Campaign
Lakewood City Councilor Ramey Johnson has announced that she is running for re-election to City Council in 2013.
Councilor Johnson fulfilled her promise to be an effective voice on city council. Ramey is fond of saying she uses her ‘personal filter’ before voting. That filter was built over a lifetime in Lakewood. She has used this approach not only as a City Counselor but as a former state representative. Ramey is strongly committed to the good of the city and people. Representing people’s concerns is evident in every vote she makes.
Letters and speeches explaining Ramey’s votes on key issues can be found on her website under “The Conversation” along with her stance on a wide range of issues dating back to her tenure as a Colorado State Representative. Also at www.RameyJohnson.com is her Town Hall-Meet and Greet schedule. Feedback from effected residents and businesses is crucial for making important decisions, and her 2013 Town Hall Meet & Greet series is a part of that effort.
Ramey says that her personal filter is based in two simple principles. “First, do no harm. Second, listen to all voices and treat others as I want to be treated.” Councilor Johnson has made a reputation of listening first and deciding later. Ramey understands that Lakewood has a spectrum of thought and all views need to be heard. She was a resident of Lakewood before it became a city and believes that our deliberative growth should reflect our heritage and community character.
Most recently, Ramey served as the Chairman of the State Medical Services Advisory Committee – appointed by the Governor and as a community liaison for the St. Anthony Hospital move. Additionally she has served on the West Metro Board and the Foothills Mental Health Board. She helped co-found the Holbrook Park Neighborhood Association and took an active role on the Citizen’s for Lakewood’s Future. Ramey is dedicated to having a positive impact on local neighborhoods and states that, “I am especially proud to help save the Holbrook Park waterway and preserve property values. I am running again to continue to make a difference”.
Ramey earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing-Metro State college and a Masters Degree in Nursing- University of Colorado both with honors. She is a 2013 graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School in Executive Education. Councilor Johnson was on the Mayor’s Ad-Hoc committed to end Lakewood’s Grocery Tax. She also served on the American Legislative Exchange Council Health Care Task Force.
Ramey and Walt Johnson have been married for 46 years and have three children: Gretchen, Roger and Aniela.
