Entry for July 10, 2007
Citing “a pattern of escalating harassment and verbal abuse from Commissioner Glen Gibson,” Larimer County Commissioner Karen Wagner resigned Monday July 9, 2007. A replacement will be appointed to serve out the remaining 18 months of here term.
Already rumors are circulating about her replacement and what impact this may have if the replacement is already serving in another elected position.
In addition, the prospects for a other local politicians (like State Senator Steve Johnson) have improved since they see an easier win against a newly appointed incumbent. It is no secret that State House Representative Don Marostica is interested in Johnson's Senate seat which would leave the 51st House Seat open for new candidates.
Any comments on who will win this new round of musical chairs? Could staff have done more to control Gibson?
