Lindsey Rasmussen is a young professional in Denver who joined Hilltop as an Associate in 2021. Her experience spans from working in former State Representative and current Jefferson County Commissioner Tracy Kraft-Tharp’s legislative office to managing Kraft-Tharp’s competitive Jefferson County Commissioner campaign in 2020 that ended in an eight-point victory over a powerful incumbent. As one of the largest counties in the state, Jefferson County is a vital battleground area in which Lindsey has consulted on numerous campaigns and helped move municipal, county, and state offices towards Democratic leadership.
