Denver school board director Brad Laurick to resign this summer

Denver school board director Brad Laurick, a pastor, will resign his seat this summer, a year before his term ends, after being appointed to First United Methodist Church in Fort Collins, announced Denver Public Schools on Monday.

Laurick, who has served as pastor of Denver’s Highlands United Methodist Church, was elected to the school in 2019. His term was expected to end in 2023, but he will leave his seat on the district’s Board of Education by the end of June, according to a news release.

“Pastor Laurvick always brought a sensitive, thoughtful and measured discussion to the issues we addressed,” said Xóchitl Gaytán, president of the board, in a statement. “We are thrilled that Pastor Laurvick has this new opportunity to serve in his church.”

The school board will have to appoint a replacement for Laurvick’s seat, which represents northwest Denver, to serve until the 2023 elections, according to the news release.
