Welcome to Who’s Next! In this series, we want to introduce you (and ourselves, sure) to tomorrow’s leaders.

To start with, we’re going to build a list of rising stars in the world of politics — with help from our readers and community. That list will be Denverite’s first-ever class of Who’s Next: Politics, presented by Sewald Hanfling Public Affairs.

We’re looking to find up-and-coming stars in the world of politics.

We know people early in their careers can make big differences in a city like Denver. We also know that the Denverite community has its finger on the pulse of the city.

Think of people who might soon be helping Denver and Colorado navigate the many changes of the present and the future, running for statewide office or effecting change through the city, state or federal political systems.

(We won’t be considering people who are currently in contested races for elected office.)

We’re counting on you to point us to the right people.

Use the form below to nominate Denver’s rising stars before 5 p.m. Sunday, April 22, or nominate here. We’ll throw the honorees a party that you can attend, too. Stay tuned for details.

UPDATE: Nominations are now closed. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to follow along and find out Who’s Next in Politics.
