ASA’s Levy Wins Second Term in Local Election

Friday, October 13th, 2023

ASA Executive Director Joseph Levy’s mission promoting sunburn prevention and responsible UV exposure has taken him across North America to 43 different state capitols, five Canadian provincial capitols, as well as national capitols Washington D.C. and Ottawa, Ontario.

But after 30 years working with elected officials, Levy actually became one in 2020.

Levy serves as president of the Ken Caryl Metropolitan District Board of Directors in Colorado – working with other members of a five-member elected board who meet once monthly to forge local policy in a 12,000-resident community southwest of Denver in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

After first winning election in 2020 and serving on the board from 2020-2023, Levy was re-elected to a second term this spring in a landslide victory, receiving more than twice as many votes as two challengers who ran for his seat. He has been board president since March 2022.

“So much of my professional life has involved problem-solving, diplomacy, and being able to untangle and solve misunderstandings that are often deeply rooted,” Levy said. “It’s amazing how that skill set translates to being effective in the raw and often passionate environment of local politics.”
