    Saying Goodbye to Longtime Commissioner J. Kevin McCasky

    Jefferson County will soon be saying goodbye to one of its veteran elected officials, Commissioner J. Kevin McCasky, and to honor what he has accomplished in his many years as a public servant, the county is inviting its citizens to a farewell gathering on Tuesday, February 15 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The celebration will be in the atrium of the Jefferson County Administration and Courts Facility, 100 Jefferson County Parkway in Golden.

    McCasky is resigning from the Board of County Commissioners to become President and CEO of the Jefferson Economic Council (JEC). JEC is a public/private, not-for-profit partnership dedicated to preserving and enhancing economic vitality for the citizens of Jefferson County through the retention and expansion of primary jobs.

    McCasky was elected as the Jefferson County Commissioner for District 2 in November 2004, and re-elected in 2008. Prior to being a commissioner, McCasky was elected and served as the Jefferson County Assessor from 1998 through 2004.

    He served as chair of the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners and the Jefferson County Law Enforcement Authority Board in 2009, and also served as the chair of both boards in 2006. He represented the county on the Jefferson Economic Council, the Boundary Control Commission, the Jefferson Parkway Public Highway Authority, the Noxious Weed Advisory Board, the Clean Launch Board of Directors, and as an alternate on the Denver Regional Council of Governments and the Criminal Justice Strategic Planning Committee.

    McCasky is known for his passion for economic development and working with the business community. In his campaigns for commissioner he pledged to work with our businesses and it is evident that throughout his tenure, he continued to be passionate and live up to that pledge. As a result, the Economic Development Council of Colorado honored him as an outstanding volunteer who had demonstrated a multi-year commitment to the vitality, growth and sustainability of the Colorado economy.

    Within Jefferson County, McCasky was recognized by the Jefferson Economic Council as its “Elected Official of the Year” in 2006, for his efforts to help attract and retain businesses in Jeffco and the region. Also, he has been honored twice by the West Chamber serving Jefferson County as its “Elected Official of the Year” for his support of the business community. He is the only person in the Chamber’s 64 year history to receive the award twice.

    McCasky represents Jefferson County in Commissioner District 2, which is the central part of Jeffco. The vacant position will be filled, according to state statute, by the Vacancy Committee of the Jefferson County Republican Party.
