Presentation – Meet Comissioner Lesley Dahlkemper, District 3

Lesley’s professional career has focused on what she loves most – helping people, solving complex problems, and giving back to our community. She offers more than 30 years of combined experience in public policy, strategic communications, nonprofit leadership, and journalism. Lesley has worked as a senior-level executive in both the private and nonprofit sectors on state and national levels, and served on leadership teams responsible for budgets ranging from $14 million to nearly $1 billion. As the former owner of a national award-winning communications firm, Lesley worked with clients to enhance student and teacher success. Her career began as a journalist for Colorado Public Radio where she contributed stories to NPR, The Osgood File, and the BBC.

Originally from Chicago, Lesley moved to Denver in 1989 after obtaining her master’s degree in journalism from the University of Illinois. Her family has called Jeffco home for nearly 30 years. Lesley and her husband, Mike Feeley, chose to raise their daughter, Grace, in Jeffco because of its excellent schools and quality of life. Grace graduated from Lakewood High School’s IB Program and now attends college in San Francisco. Mike – an attorney and former Colorado Senate Minority Leader – was elected to the West Metro Fire Board in 2018. They live in south Jefferson County with their two rescue dogs, Peaches and Maisy.
