Progressive Dems backing Tillemann for CD6 race


AURORA | Levi Tillemann, a Democratic candidate for CD6, picked up an endorsement from the Denver chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America for his stances on renewable energy, support of single-payer healthcare and equal rights for women and the LGBTQ community.

Tillemann says “stopping (the) far right agenda is his mission.” Having served as an adviser to the Energy Department under the Obama administration, PDA said in a news release they found a “true climate champion in Levi.”

“It seems to me that Levi does not look to some better past to recreate, but to a more just, vibrant and healthy future we will build with one another,” said PDA Executive Director Donna Smith.

She does not live within the district, but PDA chapter leader Susan Gilbert, who does, said Tillemann is a “true progressive who will fight for everyone.”
