Truden joins district attorney race

Former Glenwood Springs municipal judge Colleen Truden announced Tuesday that she’ll run for the office of 9th Judicial District Attorney.

Truden, 45, who has been a judge, attorney, legal advisor and administrator during her 20-year law career, joins 9th District prosecutor Lawson Wills of Aspen in seeking the position.

Both are Republicans. No Democrat has yet announced for the race.

Current District Attorney Mac Myers, a Democrat, cannot run again due to term limits.

In a news release, Truden said she “adamantly advocates passionate and consistent representation of the people’s interests through aggressive prosecution of law violators.

“Building strong relationships with area law enforcement and helping these agencies in preparing for preliminary hearings and jury trials is a major focus,” she added.

Truden served as Glenwood Springs municipal judge for nine years while she ran her private practice.

Colorado’s primary election is Aug. 10.
