Boulder DA Stan Garnett Ekes It Out

By Matt Masich, STATE BILL COLORADO
The ballot initiative to extend the Boulder DA’s term limits from two terms to three passed. Barely.
After a recount, Issue 1D passed 29,966 to 29,957 — that’s nine votes. Boulder DA Stan Garnett, currently in his first four-year term, pushed for the term limits to be relaxed. Still, he’s publicly said that even with the new rules, he doesn’t know whether he’ll run for a second or third term.
Of the $3,775 raised for the “Yes on 1D” issue committee, Garnett personally contributed $3,050 to the issue committee, the Longmont Times-Call reported last week. Most of the state’s 22 elected DAs are limited to two four-year terms. Boulder joins Denver and Weld counties with three-term limits. The DA in Pueblo has no term limits — which may be of some solace to DA Bill Thiebaut, who lost out on the U.S. attorney nod to Stephanie Villafuerte.
