City voters retain incumbents, elect new Ward IV councilor

Marijuana Tax, Charter Amendment And Dia Agreement Also Approved - COMMERCE CITY, COLO (Nov. 4, 2015) - According to unofficial results from the Adams County Clerk & Recorder's Office, Commerce City voters retained four city council incumbents, elected a new Ward IV council member, and approved several ballot measures to improve city and regional operations.

Mayor Sean Ford, Ward II Councilman Rick Teter and At-Large Councilors Steve Douglas and Crystal Elliott were re-elected to serve a four-year term. Paolo Diaz was elected to represent Ward IV as incumbent Jim Benson was term-limited. City voters overwhelmingly approved a five percent excise tax on the transfer of marijuana products as well as updated the city charter to revise current posting locations of council ordinances.

On a regional level, city voters also supported School District 27J's construction bond initiative to address the district's growth and maintenance needs as well as the 1A measure, which ratified the agreement between Commerce City, Denver and Adams County to expand development opportunities on Denver International Airport and share tax revenue. With 12 square miles of airport-adjacent land, the city is poised to benefit from development along Tower Road and E-470 that could rival the Denver Tech Center.

Adams County will certify the 2015 election no later than November 30, 2015, consistent with state statute. During the Dec. 7, 2015, council meeting, outgoing councilmembers will be recognized and incoming elected officials will be sworn in. The public is invited to attend the meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception to follow.
