Former City Councilors seeking higher office in November ballot

Bird, Baker, Mullica vying for legislature seats

The race to fill State House District 35's seat will be a battle between former Westminster City Council colleagues as current councilor Shannon Bird, a Democrat, faces off against former Councilor Bruce Baker, a Republican.
Both were unopposed in their bids to win their party's nominations at the primary polls June 26. District 35 runs roughly from Sheridan east to Interstate 25 and from about 70th Avenue north to about 156th Avenue
The two are facing off in their effort to replace current representative, Democrat Faith Winter.
Winter, for her part, will be trying to unseat Republican Beth Martinez Humenik as the State Senator for District 24. Both candidates were unopposed in the primary election.
That senate district includes Shaw Heights, Westminster, Northglenn and Thornton.
In the race to fill the State Representative seat in District 34, former Northglenn Councilor Kyle Mullica, a Democrat, will face off against Republican Alexander “Skinny” Winkler, who currently holds the seat. Mullica defeated Jacque Phillips to win the Democratic nomination.
Colorado Republicans tapped Winkler to fill the seat in March as a replacement for Representative Steve Lebsock, ousted after allegations of sexual harassment put forward by colleagues. Lebsock, elected in 2016 as a Democrat, switched his party affiliation to the Republicans just before resigning his seat.
The general election is scheduled for Nov. 6.
In countywide races, Democrat Emma Pinter — another Westminster City Councilor — will face Republican Larry Hoy for the District 3 Adams County Commission seat; Incumbent Democrat Steve D'Orisio will face Republican Joyce Thomas for the District 4 County Commission Seat.
Incumbent Republican Stan Martin will face Democrat Josh Zygielbaum for the County Clerk and Recorder seat, current Sheriff Mike McIntosh, a Republican, will face Democrat Rick Reigenborn for that seat and Democrat Ken Musso will challenge Republican Patsy Melonakis for the County Assessor's seat.
