Two incumbents, one new trustee in Berthoud


BERTHOUD — Eight percent of Berthoud’s registered voters participated in the elections Tuesday.

Voters chose two incumbents and one fresh face to serve on the Berthoud Board of Trustees: Mike Patrick, Glen Buckingham and Chase Sommars.

Town clerk Mary Cowdin said 256 of Berthoud’s 3,199 registered voters participated in Tuesday’s election. In the last municipal election, 334 people voted, she said.

Buckingham, who will serve his second term on the board, said an “underwhelming” ballot — one with board candidates but no issues — may have contributed to low voter turnout. He also said many people may not have had time to vote because of work.

“I hope the reconstructed board continues to do the things we’ve worked so hard on,” he said. “I’m looking forward to coming back and dealing with some unfinished issues we’ve been talking about for a year or two.”

Board members who “have been here for a while had the opportunity to let people know not just what they think they might do, but what they’ve done,” said Patrick, who also will serve his second term on the board.

Sommars, the only new electee to the board, said he was “nervous, excited” and had a “melting pot of emotions.”

The three will be sworn in at the end of the next town board meeting on Tuesday.

“Tuesday night,” Sommars said. “I’ll be there.”

JOHNSTOWN

About 3 percent of Johnstown voters Tuesday decided to form a charter and become a home-rule town, said town clerk Diana Seele.

Of 3,939 registered voters, 114 went to the polls, and 101 of them approved the home-rule issue.

They also selected Chester Hays, Clyde Briggs, Edwin Hill, Steven Ramsey, Bernard Coffin, Leo Dowling, Shirley Newsom-Gamez, Russell McConnell and Paul Kingsolver to write the charter.

The three candidates who ran for the town board — incumbents Mark Romanowski and Scott James and newcomer Clair Hull — each won the three seats.

MILLIKEN

In Milliken, 207 out of 2,500 registered voters — about 8 percent turnout — selected three trustees from six candidates.

Ted Chavez, incumbent Milt Tokunaga and Julie Cozad — who beat Mayor Pro Tem Janie Lichtfuss by one vote — will serve on the board.

ESTES PARK

Unofficial results in Estes Park showed voters selected incumbent Richard Homeier, Dorla Eisenlauer and Eric Blackhurst to serve on the town board.
