2012 Endorsements

Endorsements

I am honored to be endorsed by organizations, community leaders, and elected officials from various levels of government including my HD 41 predecessor and current State Senator, Nancy Todd, and our local newspaper The Aurora Sentinel.

“In House District 41, legislative newcomer Jovan Melton is the best choice (for) House District 41. Melton, a Democrat, brings a great deal of experience and enthusiasm to the open seat. In just a short time on the campaign trail, Melton has obtained as strong a grasp of the issues facing the state and Aurora as if he had long been the incumbent. Melton will be a strong and important addition to Aurora’s legislative contingent.”
