Thank you for your support! I look forward to serving you on City Council.
I’ve lived in Colorado Springs for 27 years. When I was elected Secretary of State, folks encouraged me to move to Denver but the Springs is my home. I want Colorado Springs to be a City that people fall in love with and never want to leave—just like happened to me on my first visit in 1992.
I’ve seen firsthand the importance of local leadership who work together. As a member of Council and the Utilities Board, I will promote our city’s economic vitality. I also will work to address the city’s infrastructure needs, particularly in transportation and utilities. I will also ensure services for a growing city, including utilities, parks, police, and fire protection.

What People are Saying

Wayne Williams has done a great job as a County Commissioner, as Clerk and Recorder, and as Secretary of State. There’s every reason to believe he’ll do a great job as a Colorado Springs City Councilmember.
- Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers
During my eight years as of Mayor of Colorado Springs I worked closely with Wayne Williams to improve our City for all its residents. As a County Commissioner Wayne took the lead in partnering with the City of Colorado Springs to create and secure voter approval of the Pikes Peak RTA generating the funding we needed to improve our road, bridge and transit infrastructure. Wayne was key in securing state funding for the widening of I-25 to six lanes through Colorado Springs (COSMIX) and he worked tirelessly to help create more affordable housing units for our community. Wayne has what it takes to be a great City Council member and strong working partner with Mayor Suthers. Wayne is my top choice for Colorado Springs City Council. I strongly endorse Wayne Williams and will be voting for him on April 2nd.
- Former Colorado Springs Mayor Lionel Rivera (2003-2011)
Wayne and I have worked well together in the past. He is a fair-minded, hard-working and really cares about his city. I would look forward to serving with him over the remaining two years I am on Council.
- Colorado Springs City Council President Richard Skorman
I have known Wayne Williams for more than a decade. I have found him to be honest and have high integrity. He is one of the finest public servants this City, County and State have ever had. Wayne knows how to work collaboratively to find sustainable solutions to critical issues facing our great city. Our city would be blessed and to have Wayne Williams as a member of the Colorado Springs City Council.
- Colorado Springs City Councilmember Merv Bennett
Wayne Williams was formerly an El Paso County Commissioner and most recently, Colorado Secretary of State. If we can get his quality of public servant sitting on your City Council, that would be a huge win for the citizens. He brings years of experience and good judgement to the table.
