Leadership.
Communication.
Trust.

Erin is a convener, an innovator, and a true public servant. In my years as a Colorado legislator and House Majority Leader, I saw many candidates. Erin is highly qualified and I am happy to endorse her for the vacancy on the Fort Collins City Council. Perhaps most importantly, she will approach the job with humility and the understanding that it is truly a privilege to serve.

Meet Erin

I’m excited to put my experience as a small-business owner, community volunteer, and parent to work for the betterment of my district and all of Fort Collins, where I’ve lived for more than 20 years.

Colorado 50/50

Bringing Women's Voices to the Table

Erin Hottenstein is the founder of Colorado 50-50, a non-partisan group that encourages women to serve on boards, commissions, and in elected office. Elected women officials have shared their experiences and encouraged women to get on a path to leadership.

More than 600 people have attended the programs, including many from underrepresented groups, over the last four years. Their daily presence on social media helped to get out the vote in the last several elections.

Get Involved

Her wealth of experience covering all levels of government as a journalist, her drive to bring gender parity to elected positions throughout the state, which led her to start Colorado 50-50, her willingness to really listen and work for her constituents, and her experience running a family-owned small business make Erin a strong candidate.

Join Team Hottenstein and help bring Erin’s leadership to Fort Collins City Council.
