Due to the fact there were no more candidates certified than the number of positions available for Mayor, City Council Wards 1 and 2 and City Clerk/Treasurer, it is anticipated that City Council will adopt a resolution on September 19, 2019 officially cancelling the November election and that those certified candidates will take their oaths of office at the November 21st council meeting. Candidate-elects are as follows:
Bruce Davis, Mayor
Mark Gregory, Council Ward 1
Barbara Manning, Council Ward 2
Glori Thurston, City Clerk/Treasurer
A big welcome to new City Councilor, Mark Gregory. Mr. Gregory has been a resident of Victor since 1996 and currently gives mine tours at the Lowell Thomas Museum. Mr. Gregory will hold the office until the next election.
Congratulations to Mayor Bruce Davis who was appointed to fill the vacant mayoral position at last night’s City Council meeting. That now leaves a vacancy in Ward 1 on City Council.
If you are interested in filling that vacancy until the November election and are a qualified elector in Ward 1, please see the following Announcement:
The City of Victor is seeking Letters of Intent for the newly vacated City Council position formerly held by Councilor Bruce Davis. In accordance with Colorado Revised Statutes, an individual will be appointed by Council to fill the vacant position until the next regularly scheduled election, to be held on November 5, 2019. Qualified persons interested in filling the position must submit a letter expressing interest to the Mayor and City Council no later than Friday, August 9, 2019 by 9:00 a.m. for inclusion in Council packets.

Mayor Don Daniel submitted his resignation effective July 1st due to health reasons.

Please keep Don and Sandra Daniel and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
