Nancy Henjum
for City Council District 5

I'm running for Colorado Springs City Council in District 5 because I believe our city works best when our voices are heard and represented in the decisions that face our community. Let's work together as neighbors to improve our community and turn challenges into opportunity we can build together!

What the community is saying about Nancy

Nancy's greatest strengths are her ability to listen, connect and communicate. It's that exact skill set that is needed on City Council as our city grows and our neighborhoods experience the realities of a larger community. Her natural tendency to collaborate and work collectively will serve our district and Colorado Springs well.

Amy Triandiflou; Neighborhood Advocate

The Pikes Peak region needs leaders who are focused on good governance and prioritize accessibility for residents to their elected officials. We need more local leaders, like Nancy, who care about engaging constituents by listening to their values and concerns and responding with commitment to constituent services.

Shawn Gullixson, President, D11 School Board

As the owner of a woman owned business and District 5 resident, it’s important that as we emerge from the pandemic our city leaders possess the same resilient and collaborative spirit of our small business community. I have no doubt that Nancy possesses the required experience to listen and lead on behalf of our district.

Andrea Barker; Principal - HB&A

I have found Nancy to be a fair-minded individual with a keen interest in community engagement and dialogue who will work hard and be the type of problem solver we need on City Council as our city navigates its way forward.

WELCOME

Hi, I'm Nancy Henjum. I'm a mom, community builder, and for the last 20 years I've been an executive coach and leadership consultant for companies big and small. Like many of you, Colorado Springs has an important place in my heart. I first experienced our community as a kid when my dad, Joe Henjum, was an instructor at the Air Force Academy. Thirty years ago I moved back with my husband to start our family.

I am motivated by service and giving back. I've been fortunate to serve as the board president of CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates), as a Council Moderator for my downtown church, and have served in various roles with other Colorado Springs based organizations.

Our city is now at a critical juncture and I believe we need leaders who are willing to listen, collaborate, and engage the community in the conversations on the issues that impact our community as we grow. I want to bring my 30 years of service listening, engaging, and building bridges to help create long-lasting solutions for the issues we face as a community.

Please read through my website and don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail with any thoughts or questions. I want to hear from you!
