District Attorney Candidates

Tim McCormack

Born in Great Falls, Montana, Tim graduated from Grand Junction High School and earned degrees from Colorado State University and Creighton School of Law. Tim has practiced law in Wyoming and Colorado and for the past 20 years, Tim and his wife Renae have raised their family in Adams County.

Tim began his 28 year career in public safety in 1992 with the Sheridan County and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in Sheridan, Wyoming. In 1999, Tim moved back to Colorado with his family and went to work for the District Attorney’s Office for Adams/Broomfield counties. Tim was promoted to a Chief Trial Deputy and held that position for 11 years. In October of 2016, Tim left that office and went to work for the District Attorney’s Office for Jefferson/Gilpin counties where he remains today.

For 28 years, Tim has prosecuted, convicted and put away murderers, rapists, drug dealers, people who physically and sexually assault children and those who prey upon the elderly. Tim distinguishes between good people who have made mistakes and criminals who prey upon our communities. Tim stands for the Rule of Law and is a strong supporter for law enforcement and veterans. Tim works hard in the criminal justice system advocating treatment for those afflicted by addiction and mental health issues.

Tim is running for the Office of District Attorney for Adams/Broomfield counties because public safety is his top priority. Tim is a prosecutor, not a politician. Tim brings back the integrity, experience and leadership that are so badly needed in that office. Join us to hear and support Tim McCormack along his campaign. Check out and we can be reached at
