Nine candidates vie for three seats on South Suburban board


Nine candidates are seeking election for three seats on the South Suburban Park and Recreation District board of directors. The districtwide polling place election is May 8.

The order of the names appearing on the ballot was determined via lottery drawing March 7 at the South Suburban Administration Building, 6631 S. University Blvd., Centennial. The ballot order is: Susan Pye, Michael G. Kohut, Jeff Monroe, Dave Lawful, Jerry Bakke, Dan Purse, Tom Wood, Charlie Blosten and Pete Barrett.

The five-member board of directors is elected at large to four-year terms, on a nonpartisan basis. The board of directors meets on the second and fourth Wednesday evenings of each month at Goodson Recreation Center in Centennial. Additional study sessions or special meetings are called as needed.

The election will be a polling place election, with the option of obtaining an absentee ballot. This is a district regular election and will feature only the election of board of directors candidates.

Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Buck Recreation Center, 2004 W. Powers Ave., Littleton; Goodson Recreation Center, 6315 S. University Blvd., Centennial; The Lone Tree Hub, 8827 Lone Tree Parkway; and South Suburban Golf Course, 7900 S. Colorado Blvd., Centennial.

Existing board members are John Ostermiller, Pam Eller, Mike Anderson, Scott LaBrash and Jim Taylor. Ostermiller, Eller, and Anderson are term-limited and cannot seek re-election, and LaBrash will reach his term limit in May 2020. Taylor is eligible for re-election in May 2020.
