Running for Office?

Thank you for your interest in serving your community through public office! CML has put together a free Municipal Candidates Guide to help you understand some of the basic things it is important to know as an elected official making important contributions to the shaping of your community's future.


CML releases several publications each year on a variety of municipal topics, available for purchase both as printed books and downloadable PDFs. Of particular interest to those new to local government would be Colorado Municipal Government: An Introduction and our annual State of Our Cities & Towns report. Search publications online or download an order form
