Warren-Gully holds large lead in race for Arapahoe County commissioner, District 1

West area an uphill battle for incumbent Conti

Posted

A Democratic challenger in a west Arapahoe County commissioner district appeared to have amassed a large early lead against the Republican incumbent.

Carrie Warren-Gully led with about 55.1% to Kathleen Conti's 42% in results as of about 11:15 p.m. on Election Night.

Warren-Gully held about 38,300 votes to Conti's 29,200. Libertarian candidate Joshua Lallement garnered 2,000, or 2.9%.

Commissioners make up the governing body of a county, somewhat similar to city councils. District 1 includes parts of Littleton, Sheridan, Englewood, west Centennial and Cherry Hills Village.

Conti, the incumbent commissioner in the district, had played up her experience and the knowledge of county departments she gained in the last four years. She's a resident of Littleton.

Warren-Gully, a Centennial resident, is a member of the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education.

Conti, if reelected, said the top issue in her agenda would be maintaining or increasing “our current level of service to the citizens by protecting our county tax revenues from the state stealing it through unfunded mandates,” her response in a Colorado Community Media questionnaire said.

Warren-Gully said the issue at the top of her agenda would be economic recovery in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I have seen firsthand how this pandemic has impacted all segments of our community. To recover economically, families need a stable environment for their children while at work,” Warren Gully said in a Colorado Community Media questionnaire.
