Each of Colorado’s 22 judicial districts elects a district attorney who serves as the chief law enforcement officer for that district. The 18th JD is the most populous in Colorado, with a population of more than 1 million people.

George’s experience includes working as a deputy district attorney, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, military prosecutor, and just prior to his election, the Chief of Military Justice — the chief prosecutor for Fort Carson, the 4th Infantry Division, and the U.S. Division North in Iraq.

George received an Army ROTC Scholarship to pay for college at the University of Colorado-Boulder, where he also earned his Juris Doctorate. He has been mobilized twice since 9/11. In 2015, George transferred from the U.S. Army Reserve to the Colorado Army National Guard, where he serves as a Colonel.

He has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado, University of Denver, and the U.S. Army JAG School, and he has trained state and military prosecutors across the United States and worldwide.

George is married with four children.
