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. Sullivan will join seven other elected officials at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Moffat County District Court to be sworn into their respective elected offices. 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.
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. Current Moffat County Sheriff Tim Jantz, county clerk and recorder candidate Lila Herod and county surveyor candidate Peter Epp each notched more than 2,000 votes as they were the sole GOP contenders for their respective positions. They move on to the general election, and possibly into public office in January 2011. 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.
A resolution aimed at limiting the federal Hatch Act’s reach into small, rural communities, such as Craig, passed the Colorado Senate on May 12.
Sitting and waiting for more than three hours at the state capitol, and listening to heated committee debates between Colorado lawmakers, Craig resident Lila Herod was admittedly nervous.
