Dominick Moreno Announces Desire to Run for Commerce City Ward 1 Council Position

As many of you probably don’t know me, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am the son of Domingo and Adelia (“Dilly”) Moreno, who have both lived in Commerce City most of their lives. I was born and raised in this city, attending Central Elementary, Kearney Middle School, and finally Adams City High School where I graduated valedictorian of the class of 2003. In high school, I was very active in Student Council (serving all 4 years), National Honor Society, and M.E.Ch.A. (Movimiento Estudiantil de Chicano de Aztlán). I received scholarships from the Adams County Education Foundation, Daniels Fund, and Columbine Never Forgotten Fund. Because of these generous scholarships, I was able to attend Georgetown University in Washington, DC.

In DC, I continued to pursue my passion for community service by pledging a co-ed community service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. I served in a number of leadership positions and had the opportunity to volunteer a summer teaching English in Sinaloa, Mexico in 2006. I was recognized for my commitment to service with the Distinguished Service Key, the highest award granted at the chapter level. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in American Government in 2008, I decided to return to Colorado and give back to the community that has given me so much.

To that end, I respectfully announce my candidacy for Ward I of City Council. I am running because I believe Commerce City produces people with a great variety of talents. However, often times, these talented individuals leave our city and put their gifts to work elsewhere, neglecting the community that nurtured their potential. I decided some time ago that I would not be one of those people. I returned to Commerce City and am using my talents to fight for the citizens of this community. Because, after all, Commerce City is home. I know it inside and out and I promise to be a tireless advocate for everyone who lives here.

I look forward to speaking with you about your ideas, opinions, and concerns regarding city council. Contact me by e-mail at or by phone at (303) 907-0714.

Good luck, you might want to answer the questions posted on the blog for the candidates.
I would like to know where you stand, your education and youth is great, but tells me nothing about the issues.

Welcome to the party, it's good to see a home grown boy, come home.

As you can see there are a lot good questions to get your head around.

I'll look forward to meeting you, and again, welcome to the race.
