Governor Appoints New Public Trustees
To update our previous post, Governor Hickenlooper has reinstated five of the ten public trustees who resigned or retired last month after reports by The Denver Post revealed apparent abuses of public funds by certain trustees. The five reappointed trustees include those in El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, Weld and Douglas Counties. In addition, the Governor appointed new trustees in Adams, Boulder and Pueblo Counties and indicated that he was still searching for new appointees for Arapahoe and Mesa Counties. The public trustees who were not reappointed were the focus of the Denver Post reports. The Governor also indicated that he looked forward to working with the legislature in January on a number of changes to Colorado’s foreclosure laws, including the laws governing Colorado’s public trustees.
