Dominick Moreno grew up attending public schools where he graduated valedictorian while working afternoons at the local Dairy Queen. Through scholarships and part-time jobs, he attended Georgetown University and graduated with a degree in American Government. Dominick quickly moved back to the home he loves — Colorado — where he combined his education and commitment to public service. At the age of 24, Dominick was elected to city council in Commerce City – the youngest member in city history. Dominick went on to serve in the Colorado House of Representatives for two terms before being elected to the Colorado Senate in 2016. He was selected to serve on the esteemed Joint Budget Committee, the principal committee tasked with balancing Colorado’s $36 billion state budget each year and chaired the committee twice. Dominick served as Majority Leader of the Colorado Senate from February 2022 through September 2023, when he resigned to accept an appointment as Deputy Chief of Staff in the administration of Denver Mayor Mike Johnston.
