Looking to 1996

Brief by Central Staff

Politics – December 1995 – Colorado Central Magazine

And now for ’96

There’s no time to go into recovery from the ’95 election; we’ve got a general election coming up next year.

Ken Chlouber, a Leadville Republican who has represented House District 61 for about a decade, won’t run for that seat next year, which leaves it open.

Carl Miller, a Leadville Democrat, has already announced for it. Miller served 12 years as a Lake County commissioner, and most recently has run the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum in Leadville.

Back to Chlouber. He said he’ll run next year for the state senate seat now held by Linda Powers, a Crested Butte Democrat who ran against Scott McInnis for Congress last year.

Rumor has it that McInnis will stay in the House, even though there’s an open U.S. Senate seat in Colorado with Republican Hank Brown deciding not to run again.

Anyway, we wish Carl Miller the best of luck in his campaign. He’s a subscriber, and we know that all our subscribers are great people.
