Don Sheehan

Council Member, District 4


When did you move to Centennial?

I moved to unincorporated Arapahoe County (now Centennial) in September 1992.

Why did you move here?

 I moved to Centennial to be close to work and for an affordable house.

What do you like most about living in Centennial?

Centennial is a safe community with all the amenities of a city. Centennial is well run, fiscally conservative with smart plans for future growth.

Why did you decide to run for City Council?

I was appointed to Centennial’s Senior Commission in 2018. While serving on the commission, I became familiar with city operations, City Council Members, the Mayor and City employees. I liked what I saw. When the Council Member Ron Weidmann decided not to run for reelection, I decided to run.  I am excited to serve the community and help guide the city into the new decade.

What are your primary goals as a Council Member?

Centennial, like every Colorado community, faces growth challenges. My primary goal is to keep Centennial a great place to live while managing smart growth.

Community Involvement

I volunteer at the Wings over the Rockies Aviation Museum including the Exploration of Flight annex at Centennial Airport. I am a volunteer Victim Advocate with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. I also volunteer with the Boy Scouts, the Salvation Army, Operation Turkey and other local charities.

Hobbies & Activities

I enjoy a wide variety of activities including hiking, kayaking and 4x4 exploring. I love to read and can even cook a decent dinner. I’m a want-to-be fly fisherman and am thinking about developing a golf game. I am a sporting clay enthusiast. I like to travel, enjoy music and should ski more often. I collect political buttons (go figure).
