Dems pick water expert Whitehead for Colo. Senate

DENVER – Democrats have chosen Colorado Water Conservation Board member Bruce Whitehead of Hesperus to replace Jim Isgar in the state Senate.

Isgar left his seat July 20 to join the U.S. Department of Agriculture as the Colorado state director for rural development.

A vacancy committee chose Whitehead to replace him Saturday. A date wasn’t immediately set for him to be sworn in.

Whitehead worked for 25 years for the Colorado Division of Water Resources and is the executive director of the Southwest and Animas-La Plata water conservation districts. Gov. Bill Ritter appointed him last year to serve on the Colorado Water Conservation Board.
