Froelich takes state House vacancy after Bridges shifts to Senate

Former councilmember fills House District 3 seat

Posted

Meg Froelich, a former Greenwood Village city councilmember who was bested by state Rep. Jeff Bridges in the 2016 Democratic primary for state House District 3, will now succeed him in that seat after winning a vacancy election.

“I have experience in both city council and nonprofit management,” Froelich said on stage Jan. 7 at the Englewood Civic Center before a vote among Arapahoe County Democratic Party activists. “I know the players at the Capitol.”

She pulled away with 45 votes, beating opponent John Stone, a union organizer, who garnered 13.

The district covers Englewood, Sheridan, Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village and northern Littleton. The seat opened after a similar vote Jan. 5 selected Bridges, D-Greenwood Village, to fill a vacancy in Senate District 26 left by state Sen. Daniel Kagan, D-Cherry Hills Village, who resigned.
