Randall Peterson resigns from Northglenn City Council

Posted

Quite suddenly, another spot opened on the Northglenn City Council after Ward 1 Councilman Randall Peterson resigned Friday.  

A city of Northglenn news release said Peterson’s resignation was effective immediately and that he didn’t provide a reason for his decision. Peterson was not immediately available for comment.

Peterson’s term was set to expire this November. He originally joined council in January 2020 when the council appointed him after Meredith Leighty became mayor.

When a council seat becomes vacant, the council must appoint someone, the city charter says. That appointee serves until the next municipal election. However, the council will likely not be able to appoint someone before the Nov. 2 municipal election. So, the seat could remain vacant after November, the city’s news release said.

Peterson’s seat is the second on the council to become vacant this year. Antonio Esquibel resigned in May because he and his wife moved to Utah. The council appointed Shannon Lukeman-Hiromasa in his place until November. Lukeman-Hiromasa is running unopposed for a two-year term in Ward 4 in the November election.

The council is expected to discuss the vacancy left by Peterson at its Sept. 13 meeting.
