Jamie Giellis

Denver mayoral candidate Jamie Giellis during the 9News/Colorado Politics mayoral debate on April 17.

A mailer sent to 25,000 voters in Denver was labeled as from a group called “Republicans for Jamie Giellis,” but there is no such group.

The mailer, dated April 11, outlines reasons to support Giellis in the Denver mayoral race. Prominent Republican activists and politicians in Denver signed their names to the letter.

Denver Elections Division officials tell 9News that they, too, initially thought "Republicans for Jamie Giellis" was an outside group, but the letter mailed to Republicans across the city actually was from her campaign.

Giellis' campaign acknowledged that the mailer didn’t disclose that information, a violation of city code. When 9News asked how this aligns with Giellis’ calls for more ethical, accountable, and competent government in Denver, they responded by saying, “The campaign is accountable … We take responsibility for it."
