Board of Education Election Update
On Tuesday, October 6 District 50 held its Community Forum at Westminster High School for the candidates seeking election to the District 50 Board of Education.
At the forum it was announced that Board President Ruben Pacheco had notified the Colorado Secretary of State and the Adams County Clerk and Recorder that he is withdrawing from the race.
Because the ballots have already been printed, Pacheco’s name will appear on the ballot, but votes for him will not be counted. Ballots will be mailed to registered voters next week, but voters are reminded they can still register up to Election Day and vote in person at one of six Vote Centers in Adams County.
More information about voting in Adams County can be found at www.mycoloradovote.org
Pacheco’s departure leaves four candidates competing for three at-large seats for the November 3 election. Incumbents Larry Dean (Dino) Valente and Ken Ciancio are running along with Paola Urgiles and Max Math.
Voters elected Pacheco to the Board of Education in 2011 and fellow board members elected him President in 2013. He is a 1997 graduate of Westminster High School.
