February 1, 2008
Elizabeth Oldham is announcing her candidacy for district attorney of the 14th Judicial District.
Oldham has been a prosecutor for more than seven years and is the chief deputy district attorney in Grand County. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado-Boulder, and her law degree from the University of Denver in 1997.
In 2001, Oldham began prosecuting in Grand County as a deputy district attorney and was promoted soon thereafter to chief deputy district attorney. From 2003 to 2007, she served as the chief deputy district attorney in Summit County.
In May 2007, she returned to her home in Grand County to again serve as the chief deputy district attorney. Oldham is a board member for the Advocates for Victims of Assault. She is also an active member of the Rotary Club in Grand Lake.
If elected, Oldham says she will address the serious problem of methamphetamine in the 14th Judicial District by taking a hard stance in the prosecution of meth cases.
Her agenda also includes implementing a domestic violence fast track program to swiftly hold offenders accountable, and ensure offenders promptly undergo domestic violence treatment.
Oldham also intends to create a citizen advisory board to the DA’s Office to reach out to citizens for their input regarding the performance of the office and to construct programs to prevent crime for a safer community.
