STATE BILL COLORADO
Colorado Attorney General John Suthers won’t immediately name a successor for Deputy Attorney General Monica Marquez, who will join the Colorado Supreme Court on Nov. 30.
Suthers spokesman Mike Saccone said Marquez continues to work in the AG’s State Services Section. “Once we firm up when she will be leaving the office, we then will consider the issue of who will replace her,” he said.
Suthers also is sorting out what changes, if any, will be made to Marquez’s job description in preparation of her move to the high court, Saccone said.
Marquez is one of seven section chiefs working for Suthers, a veteran prosecutor who faces a re-election challenge this fall from Boulder’s new district attorney, Stan Garnett.
