William Lindstedt is resigning from Broomfield City Council to serve in Colorado House of Representatives.

Ward 2 Councilmember William Lindstedt issued a formal letter of resignation to Broomfield City Council and community members Wednesday in order to accept his new position in the Colorado House of Representatives.

Lindstedt defeated Thornton Republican Stacie Dougherty in the House District 33 race Nov. 8.

“I am deeply proud of the many accomplishments we have built together over the last three years,” his resignation letter read. “Some that stand out to me include helping create Broomfield’s independent housing authority, passing our community’s first debt policy to increase our rainy-day fund, and approving the zoning for our long-awaited Broomfield Town Center.”

Lindstedt’s resignation from City Council is effective Jan. 8, 2023.

“I will continue to fulfill the duties of this position and look out for the interests of the residents of Ward 2 until I resign,” his letter read. “I look forward to working with city staff to ensure that my duties and commitments are finalized and that there is a smooth transition for my future replacement next year.”

Lindstedt, who grew up in Broomfield, said he will continue to serve the city and county in his new seat.

“To those of you I have had the privilege of serving with, thank you for your dedication, for challenging me when needed, and for the many laughs,” his letter read. “I leave this position knowing that our community is in the hands of many incredible and capable leaders.”
