Hello! I am Karen Willey and I am running for the Douglas County Commission from District 3. When I filed to run last winter, I committed to talking about Equity, Economics, and Environment in my campaign. The pandemic and the new community commitment to addressing racial bias have further reinforced these issues.

Our community is full of advocates that elevate the issues I care about, but it takes wise leadership to translate those values into local policy. I have invested the time to build the leadership skills and relationships that will allow me to get to work immediately as we tackle policy around:

  •  Addressing equity and overcrowding in our jail
  • Recovering from the Covid-19 recession
  • Finding local ways to counter climate change
  • And much more.
