Get to Know Council Member Marlo Alston

Representing District 4, Council Member Marlo Alston and husband Bryant have called Centennial home since 2004, along with their three children, who Marlo cherishes spending time—laughing and enjoying life with—in addition to her friends! Council Member Alston loves the wide variety of Centennial’s amenities, but its renowned safety is what she appreciates most about the City. In her second term as District 4 Council Member, Marlo is excited to continue her service to the community. The City’s newly formed Public Safety Advisory Group, made possible by partnering with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, provides a critical voice Marlo values for Centennial’s continued safety. Additional goals include keeping the City’s governance efficient, effective and transparent while simultaneously being responsive and accountable. Healthcare, Housing, and Economic impacts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic are topics Council Member Alston looks forward to conquering while bringing her compassion, understanding, innovation, and experience to see Centennial through to better days again.

Outside of her service as District 4 Council Member, Marlo is a writer who dedicates time advocating for others when not binging the latest show or movie. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree from the University of Denver. Her passion is in nonprofit work, where she is a Community Relations and Development Manager.
