Nickie Antonio is a member of the Lakewood City Council and is running in an open seat vacated due to term limits. Nickie has served as a special education teacher and is a former administrator of a multi-county HIV/AIDS prevention program. If elected, Nickie would be the only lesbian serving in the state House. Nickie has a very strong campaign with grassroots energy, particularly in Lakewood. A win in this race would be an important hold as we fight back against the Republican effort to reclaim the state House.
