State Rep. Dan Nordberg Resigning

Dan Nordberg

As Ernest Luning reports for the publication formerly known as the Colorado Statesman, Colorado Springs Republican Rep. Dan Norberg is resigning from the legislature in order to take a job in the Trump administration:

Nordberg plans to resign his legislative seat to serve as regional administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Colorado Springs Republican announced Monday.

His resignation takes effect at the beginning of January, and a GOP vacancy is scheduled to meet on Dec. 21 to fill the remainder of his term…

…Nordberg, serving his third term representing El Paso County’s House District 14,  will oversee SBA operations in Region 8, covering six states — Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. He’s been a member of the House Business Affairs and Labor committee and has been its ranking member since 2015. He’s a past chairman of the Legislative Audit Committee, a panel that reviews the financial records of state agencies.

Nordberg’s departure will not likely impact the makeup of the state legislature in 2018 — his HD-14 seat is reliably Republican. But as we’ve seen in other recent Republican vacancy appointments, weird things can happen that can end up creating new waves of controversy.

  1. Aaron Novy wants the job. So does Shane Sandridge.  They both seem fairly wing- nutty, but it is El Paso County. The question is, are they corrupt enough? Because if you haven't used taxpayer money for your own personal gain, you can't even get in the door of public office in EPCO.

    If EPCO's smart, they'll promote some squeaky-clean smart woman, like Jill Repella, who has certainly paid her dues gerrymandering and working with Douglas County Schools. But again, it is EPCO, and they basically believe that women should be helpmeets (whatever the hell that is), and seen but not heard,

    Owen Hill has raised plenty money for his primary challenge of Doug Lamborn
