Isgar’s Vacant Seat Filled

Bruce Whitehead of Hesperus, Colo., will fill the Colorado Senate District 6 seat vacated by Democrat Jim Isgar, not former Montrose County Commissioner Bill Patterson.

After Isgar’s seat became vacant when he accepted a federal position, Patterson applied to the Democratic Vacancy Committee. The committee, which consists of individuals throughout District 6, announced the decision Saturday.

Whitehead worked for 25 years for the Colorado Division of Water Resources and is the executive director of the Southwest and Animas-La Plata water conservation districts. Gov. Bill Ritter appointed him last year to serve on the Colorado Water Conservation Board.
