Houck and Messner win county commissioner races

Results are still unofficial but late night results indicate that Jonathan Houck has been overwhelmingly reelected to his Gunnison County commissioner seat for a second term. Houck was showing 6,012 votes to challenger Paul Wayne Foreman’s 2,194.
In district 1, the race to replace outgoing commissioner Paula Swenson was won by Democrat John Messner. He was tallying 5,179 votes to Republican Brad Tutor’s 3,609.
Crested Butte ballot issue 2A was overwhelmingly approved by a vote of 903 to 137. That will allow the town to use future open space tax revenues on a deal to help keep industrial mining off of Mt. Emmons.
The online report from the elections office indicated that 9,243 votes have been cast in the county. Look for more detailed results in this week’s edition of the Crested Butte News.
