THREE COUNCIL MEMBERS AND THE CLERK AND RECORDER ARE HISPANICS

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Michael Hancock won the reelection to serve a third and last term as Mayor of Denver. “Thank you, Denver, for voting throughout the city. To be your Mayor has been the honor of my life and I am ready to continue to work with and for the people of this great city,” said Hancock after declaring victory. Hancock obtained 56.29% of the votes compared to 43.71% obtained by his contender Jamie Giellis, also a democrat. Minority votes widely favored Mayor Hancock.

The City Council that will serve along Hancock has 5 new members. Amanda Sandoval and Jamie Torres won Districts 1 and 3, respectively, against officials who chose not to go to reelection. The other three new members of the Council defeated incumbents who were seeking reelection. Amanda Sawyer will serve District 5, while Candi CdeBaca and Chris Hind will serve for Districts 9 and 10.

Hispanic power

The election runoff demonstrated the voting power Latinos have in the city. Three of the new Council Members, Sandoval, Torres and CdeBaca, are Hispanic and won in districts with an important number of Hispanic voters. Meanwhile, at press time, Paul Lopez, who reached his term as Councilman on District 3, was ahead on the results to become the new Denver Clerk and Recorder. Lopez’s lead was under one percent, so a recount is expected.

Olympic games

Denver voters also decided that it will be them, and not the city government, who decide whether the capital of Colorado will be a candidate to host the Winter Olympics, in case that possibility arises. Promoters of Initiated Ordinance 302 didn’t get gather enough signatures on time for the May 7th election. For that reason, they were automatically included in the following elections that were those of June 4th.
