Population dynamics have changed in

Jefferson County, and the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County will sponsor a free community meeting to address the impacts of these changes on Saturday, April 7 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at St. Anthony Hospital, south entrance, 11600 W. 2nd Place, Lakewood.

Natalie O’Donnell Wood, Senior Policy Analyst at The Bell Policy Center, will explore the effects of demographic changes on the economy – for individuals and governments – including government revenues and expenditures, a changing job market, income inequality, retirement security, healthcare costs and others.

Lakewood mayor Adam Paul will address the city’s approach to the impacts of population changes, and how a local government plans and prepares for changes in population demographics, revenue, needed services and an evolving job market.

The meeting is one in a series based on the results of a 2017 review of demographic changes in the county by the League of Women Voters Jeffco. A Health Care meeting was presented in March and a Transportation meeting is set for May.

The League of Women Voters of Jefferson County, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
