Shawna Ambrose

for Arvada City Council, District Two

After finishing my enlistment in the United States Army, I chose to live in Arvada. As a working mom, I’m thankful for what Arvada gives my family: supportive community, beautiful parks, and Arva-Pride. 


Decisions made by city council in the next few years will chart our city’s course for decades. With 20 years of service in non-profit leadership, pro-union negotiations, and military service I can win us the progress we need. Let’s win together. Let’s make Arvada work for you!

Thanks for submitting!

How can city council support strong public education? Hosted by Commissioner Lesley Dahlkemper and Former JeffCo school board member Jill Fellman, share your thoughts about what our city can do to ensure there are strong public schools in Arvada. Location shared upon registration.


Affordable Housing

Development should be oriented towards the people of Arvada, not developers. We need more housing for our seniors, students, working families, and the people of Arvada. 

Environmental Justice

Access EPA funds to form an equitable climate plan enabling Arvada to apply for millions of dollars from the Inflation Reduction Act to mitigate climate change.

Public Safety

Let's strengthen the social service programs proven to reduce crime. Technological advancement and citizen involvement to address traffic, porch pirates, and car theft and all crime.

Local Business

Rebate local small businesses municipal sales tax by instituting franchise fees to strengthen the local economy and even the playing field.

Why Vote For Me?

After my military service, I chose to raise my family in Arvada. The people and place truly make it home. I am grateful to this city for all it gives my family: community support, beautiful parks, and that "Arva-Pride". It's a critical time for Arvada's leadership, and a vote for me will ensure that you have someone on city council who is looking out for your family. 

A vote for me is a vote for sustainability, climate preparedness, women's rights, unions, and affordable housing. My 20 years of non-profit, union, and military experience is highly applicable to city council. My experience means I can get the job done.  Please feel free to reach out anytime to discuss your vision for our great city!
