House Ag Chair Changes Party Affiliation

CO State Rep. Kathleen Curry of Gunnison

State Rep. Kathleen Curry has changed her voter registration from Democrat to unaffiliated, a move that will require the Gunnison lawmaker to relinquish her positions as speaker pro tem and chairwoman of the House Agriculture Committee.

Curry said she made the change Monday after talking to House Speaker Terrance Carroll, who had appointed Curry to the plum pro tem position.

“It’s just a matter of where I fit,” she said Tuesday. “But I’m not changing my personality overnight just because I filled out a form. I’m still going to vote my conscience, which the majority of time is with the Democrats.”

Speaker Terrance Carroll said he will decide in a few days which lawmaker will replace Curry as chair of the House Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources Committee, and as speaker pro tem, the No. 2 position in the House. The 2010 session opens Jan. 13.

Rep. Sal Pace (D-Pueblo), Rep. Randy Fisher (D-Ft. Collins) and Rep. Wes McKinley (D- Walsh) are said to be the possible front runners for the chairmanship.

  1. Shawn, Pace or McKinley would be great I feel Mr.Fischer would be a wreck waiting for a place to happen.
