Hamner Re-elected to Represent Lake County
Submitted by Committee to Elect Millie Hamner
Millie Hamner, the incumbent representative for House District 61, was reelected Tuesday night for a third term in the State House of Representatives.
Rep. Hamner was first appointed to the seat by a vacancy committee in December of 2010, and won election to the seat in 2012. This year she ran against Republican candidate Debra Irvine of Breckenridge and Libertarian candidate Richard “Mac” Trench of Dillon.
Final numbers (minus a few hundred provisional ballots) place Hamner at 17,152 votes, Irvine at 14,312 votes, and Trench at 1,482 votes.
“I am honored to continue to serve the residents of HD-61 as their state representative. I am humbled by their faith in my abilities, and I promise to uphold my record of responsiveness and bipartisanship over the next two years,” Hamner said on Thursday morning.
Hamner will close out the campaign by touring the district’s five counties over the next few weeks to meet with constituents, education leaders, and volunteers.
“I couldn’t have done this without the help of my many volunteers. I’ve had help from all five of HD-61’s counties, and even a few from Eagle and Garfield Counties. I am incredibly grateful to everyone, and I am thankful for the sacrifices made by each and every one of you.”
Hamner will continue to serve as a State Representative on the Wildfire Matters Interim Review Committee through the end of the 69th General Assembly this January. She will be sworn in for a third term on January 7, 2015 at the State Capitol in Denver.
