The Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson County Clerk and Recorders have provided these unofficial results for the 2017 Littleton municipal election:
|City Council District I||Arapahoe||Jefferson||Douglas||Total|
|City Council District III|
|City Council At Large|
|2C – TABOR / Retain Excess Revenue|
|2D – TABOR / Adjust Revenue Base|
In the district races, Patrick Driscoll and Carol Fey will serve four-year terms.
In the at-large race, Karina Elrod will serve a four-year term for receiving the highest number of votes and Kyle Schlachter will serve a two-year term for receiving the second highest number of votes.
The figures are not final until after the Board of Canvass of each county meets in approximately two weeks.
A reception will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 21 to welcome the new council members and recognize those who served. The new council members will be sworn in at 6:30 p.m. by Presiding Judge Ethan Feldman who will administer the oath of office. The new council will then elect the mayor and mayor pro tem to serve for the next two years.
Voters approved Question 2C by a 79-percent margin. Approval allows the city to retain excess revenue for intersection safety upgrades at Bowles Avenue and Federal Boulevard ($545,000), and pavement improvements on residential streets ($1,392,904). This will increase the 2018 residential paving program from 3.4 miles to 7 miles of street resurfacing.
Question 2D was approved by 66 percent of voters. It concerns adjusting the base used to calculate the TABOR limit to the 2016 level.
“I want to thank Littleton voters for the confidence they showed in their overwhelming support of the two TABOR questions” said Mayor Bruce Beckman. “We’ll move ahead as swiftly as possible to get these infrastructure improvements underway to fulfill our obligation to voters.”
