Representative Lois Court (Denver)

State Representative Lois Court (D-Denver)

Rep. Lois Court is serving her second term as the Colorado state representative for District 6 in Denver.  She is a member of the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee and serves as the Democratic caucus chair as well as on the Legislative Council.

Rep. Court has devoted much of her time in the House to making government more accessible to voters and making laws and ballots easier to understand. In 2011, she sponsored measures to make it harder to alter the over-amended state constitution; to make the “blue book” descriptions of issues appearing on the ballot clearer, and to make it clear who writes them; and to crack down on campaign finance violations.

Rep. Court teaches political science and American government part time at Red Rocks Community College and has more than 20 years experience as a public issues consultant. She has managed a number of campaigns, including Doug Linkhart for Denver City Council and Andy Kerr for state representative. She also served as Denver Mayor Wellington Webb’s director of administration in the General Services Department and was director of the Mayor’s Office of Volunteerism and of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Response.

She has lived in Denver’s 7th Avenue Parkway neighborhood and been active in its public school and community affairs for nearly three decades.

Rep. Court has a master’s degree in public administration and a bachelor’s degree in English from CU Denver. She has been married to her husband Patrick Reynolds for 35 years, and they have two grown sons, Nathan and Brendan.
