Adams 14 Board of Education Members Smiling
  • District News

Sept. 8, 2023, COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — At a special meeting on Tuesday, the Adams County School District 14 Board of Education passed a resolution canceling the Nov. 7 school board election. Three seats were up for election and only three candidates submitted their paperwork with the requisite number of valid signatures. In compliance with state law, the board named the three qualified candidates as victors. 

The victors are incumbents Reneé N. Lovato, James L. Amador and Luz Molina, all of whom will continue on the Adams 14 board for a four-year term from 2023 to 2027. 

No other individuals filed nomination petitions or affidavits to be a write-in candidate by the required deadline, thus clearing the way to cancel the biennial school board election. The board’s decision will save the district approximately $35,000 that it would have otherwise spent to administer the election process. 

Lovato, who has served on the board since November 2019 and is currently the president, said she is excited to continue the momentum of the district as it improves its state rating and academic performance. The district recently defeated an order for reorganization and also exited turnaround status. 

“I’m thrilled to keep serving Adams 14,” Lovato said. “I want to thank our community for their support and trust in us. Our dedication to educational excellence remains unwavering.” 

“Our district has much to offer and I look forward to working with my fellow board members to provide a world-class education for our students in Adams County,” said Amador, the current board treasurer. 

“When I first joined the board in 2022, I promised to champion equity, diversity and inclusion in our schools,” Molina said. “I will continue to keep that promise and ensure our community is a place where students from all backgrounds can thrive.”
