Hi. My name is Nick Campion and I’m running for City Council District 7.
Speaking to you today is a bit surreal because I grew up with a speech and learning disability. I mumbled a lot and was a poor test taker. One time in the 1st grade, I was speaking infront of the school and I mumbled the whole time. The only person that could understand me in the room was my older sister. She came up besides me and told the school word for word what I said.
I learned that day that sometimes we all need someone in our corner. pause for effect Through hard work, resources, and the help of others, I was able to overcome these obstacles.
Fast forward, because of this support, I got an MBA from CU Boulder, joined the military, and became a software CEO for 3 successful companies. Outside of work, I put others’ interests before mine. You can find me volunteering weekly to support either entrepreneurs, the planet, or the unhoused.
As a servant leader whose life’s purpose is to serve others, the community, and the planet, I am running for Denver City Council District 7 to make Denver work for everyone where unhoused individuals are not dying on the streets, where you can afford to live here, where you feel safe, where we are supporting the planet so future generations can enjoy it, and where basic services are reliable.
As an entrepreneur and problem solver who challenges the status quo, analyzes problems, and focuses on outcomes, I will lead the charge to bring homelessness to functional zero by bringing agencies, organizations, and leaders together to pull resources and address this issue as one team.
In addition, I am committed to building communities. I helped grow two entrepreneurial communities here in Denver, I’ve been involved with various sustainability and unhoused communities, and I want to be involved in the communities in District 7. For example, I was the only candidate part of the Broadway Halloween Parade where I had 10 volunteers and myself dress up as cows, and passed out candy while telling everyone that I wanted to keep District 7 mooooving forward. And if elected I will keep that parade active.
I would like to point out how my experiences have and will help Denver. I helped small businesses by supporting over 200 entrepreneurs by giving them a platform for them to get feedback and provide resources so they can grow. And I am a strong advocate for workers rights. I hired employees giving fair wages and healthy working conditions.
I want be the Council member that you see at all the events, I want to be the council member that is accessible to its constituents, and I want to be the council member that you say is accountable. And to be accountable, I will be visible to constituents by displaying online what is being worked on, what has been accomplished, and what is in the to do list.
Just like I need someone in my corner, and I want be that person for district 7. Please to go nickfordenver.com to learn more about my campaign. And on April 4, vote for a champion and elect Nick Campion.
