AURORA | Rhonda Fields announced today she will seek the Aurora state Senate seat being vacated by fellow Democratic legislator Morgan Carroll.
In an announcement on her website, Fields said she will seek the Senate District No. 29 seat in this fall’s election. Carroll, who is term-limited, has held the seat since 2009.
The district runs roughly from East Colfax Avenue south to East Mississippi Avenue, and the Denver/Aurora border east to the border between Arapahoe County and Elbert County.
Fields has been in the state House since 2011. She became active in state politics after her son, Javad Marshall-Fields, and his fiancee, Vivian Wolfe, were gunned down in 2005 just days before Marshall-Fields could testify in another shooting. Fields first worked on victim and witness issues before running for office in 2010.
