Routt and Moffat county sheriffs say they won't, and can't, enforce new Colorado gun laws

Moffat County officials to be sworn into office next week

For Moffat County Clerk and Recorder Elaine Sullivan, Tuesday will be one she won’t soon forget. And even though she has done it twice before, she doesn’t think the day’s activities will be any less moving.

The ceremony will be a completely new experience for some, and for others it will be one they have had the honor of participating in several times before.

Moffat County GOP sheriff, clerk, surveyor candidates cruise into general election

While some Moffat County Republican candidates had a nail-biting night Tuesday during the primary election, it was smooth sailing into November’s general election for three uncontested candidates.

As of now, there are no Democratic or write-in challengers for the any county positions, save for Tami Barnes for Moffat County Commission, District 2.
