Press Release

Ramey Johnson Entering Lakewood Mayor race with a Responsible Growth Campaign

City Council member and former State Legislator, Ramey Johnson, today announced she is launching a campaign to become Lakewood’s next Mayor.

In 2015, the popular retired nurse ran for election as Lakewood’s mayor and came within half a percentage point of winning. She has continued her service to the community by serving on the Lakewood City Council for the last four years.

In addition to her career as a nurse and history of public service, Johnson’s resume also includes graduating from Harvard Kennedy School of Government’s Executive Education Program and earning a Master’s degree from CU in Public Health.

Ramey stated her decision to run came in response to requests from all across the city for fresh leadership and someone who will listen to the voice of the people. “The recent special election indicates the people of Lakewood want a say in the future of our City and they should have it” said the candidate.  “It seems Lakewood’s residents have been troubled with the direction of our city since the zoning re-write in 2012”.   “We need to move forward now in a positive direction and act in the best interest of our quality of life, schools and the people of our great city.”

Ramey will kick-off her mayoral campaign with a Return to Responsible Growth Event on Tuesday July 16th 6:00 PM at Addenbrook Park in Lakewood.    All are welcome to come and meet Ramey and hear the fresh perspective she plans to bring to city government.  More information will be posted at

I do not solicit, nor do I accept campaign contributions from special interest groups
