State Sen. Bernie Herpin didn’t waste any time making a name for himself in Denver. Elected in the wake of the recall of Sen. John Morse last September. Herpin on Monday was chosen Legislator of the Year by the Colorado County Clerks Association.
According to a press release from Herpin’s re-election team, he won the prize “because of his ability to lead and reach across party lines to get things done in Denver.”
Herpin faces former state Rep. Mike Merrifield of Colorado Springs, a Democrat, in the general election.
“I’m honored to receive this prestigious award from leaders who are entrusted to fairly conduct our elections and properly staff our bureaus of motor vehicles,” Herpin stated. “I look forward to continuing to make all levels of government work more efficiently to ensure that more Coloradans can get back to work themselves.”
The County Clerks Association is holding its three-day summer conference at Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction. Also on Monday’s itinerary was the first debate between secretary of state candidates, Republican Wayne Williams and Democrat Joe Neguse.
