Election Day: Ortiz wins in landslide Pueblo County Commissioner race


PUEBLO, Colo. — After some controversy over a possible campaign violation, the results are in for the District 2 race between Abel Tapia and Garrison Ortiz.

Unofficial results District 2: 7,854 votes for Abel Tapia and 14,268 votes for Garrison Ortiz.

Unofficial results District 1: 11,449 votes for Eppie Griego and 10,171 votes for Tisha Mauro.

In both county commissioner races, Eppie Griego and Garrison Ortiz are running unopposed, since there is no Republican candidate on the ballot in November.

“This has been a trying campaign for us, emotionally and personally. But I am really pleased and thrilled that I get to continue work that I have done for past four years,” Ortiz said.

“Running against a well-funded incumbent is never an easy task. While we are certainly disappointed by the results, I am proud of the campaign we ran and I will work with our supporters to ensure we hold our county commissioners accountable as we navigate Pueblo County through this crisis.”
