Last night was the municipal elections in Colorado Springs and former statewide elected officials John Suthers (former Attorney General) and Wayne Williams (former Secretary of State) decisively won their elections for Colorado Springs Mayor and Colorado Springs City Council, respectively.
Suthers received nearly 67,000 votes out of nearly 92,000 cast for mayor, which translates to 72.9% of the vote. It doesn’t get more decisive than that. Williams was the top vote-getter in the city council at-large seat with 45,687 votes. The candidate with the next highest votes was Bill Murray, who received 30,137 votes. Unfortunately for crazy people everywhere, former State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt did not receive enough votes to secure a city council seat.
Congratulations to Williams and Suthers.
