Unofficial Commerce City Municipal Election Results

According to unofficial results this evening from the Adams County Elections Division, Commerce City voters retained four city council incumbents and approved Issue 2K, a sales tax increase for road, recreation and parks projects. Voters also approved a charter amendment that updated election language to be consistent with current practice.

The city clerk oversaw two general improvement district elections, which were unanimously approved. Adjacent to Denver International Airport, the new districts will help advance economic development activities associated with a regional Aerotropolis.

“Commerce City voters took a bold step in moving our city forward with the passage of Issue 2K. It’s fitting that this process, which began with community involvement and citizen input, culminated tonight with approval by our community’s voters,” said Mayor Sean Ford. “Now, Commerce City can focus on several important projects that will benefit the economic vitality and quality of life in our city.”

Council results as of 5:01 p.m. Nov. 6, 2013 are as follows (unofficial winners are noted with an asterisk):

Andrew Amador* 50.16%
Gene Leffel 49.84%

Jadie Carson* 100%

Harvest Thomas 21.40%
René Bullock* 38.37%
Jason McEldowney* 29.23%
Robert Toavs 11.00%

Voters also approved two measures unanimously referred by city council. Issue 2K, a one percent sales and use tax increase, will fund five parks, recreation and road improvements over the next five years, including:
• New recreation center with an indoor pool at Second Creek Community Park
• Widening of Tower Road from 80th to 103rd avenues
• New additions to the existing recreation center, including a new therapy pool
• Seasonal outdoor pool in the southern part of the city
• Three new neighborhood parks in Fronterra, Turnberry and Villages at Buffalo Run East
The increase also will provide a dedicated revenue source to construct, operate and maintain road, park and recreation projects in the future.

Question 2L was a housekeeping amendment to the city’s charter that changes election language in section 3.1 to be consistent with current practice. The charter currently states that regular municipal elections are held in conjunction with the general elections in November of off-numbered years. The approved language replaces the word off-numbered with odd-numbered, deletes the word general and clarifies that the election is held in coordination with Adams County.

The county will certify the 2013 election on Nov. 22, 2013, consistent with state statute. Incoming elected officials will be sworn in at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 2, 2013. The public is invited to attend and a brief reception will follow. Additional information on Commerce City and other Adams County election results can be found at www.adamscountyelections.org.
