About Lynn

Lynn Bartels worked as a journalist for 35 years, including 16 years at the Rocky Mountain News and six years at The Denver Post, before retiring in 2015 and going to work as the spokeswoman for the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office. Post readers in 2012 named Bartels  the fifth most influential woman in Colorado. The South Dakota native said she never dreamt that growing up with a Republican father and a Democratic mother would provide such great training for a career covering politics.
