Colorado Rep. Perry Buck wants to be a Weld County commissioner

Republican state Rep. Perry Buck hopes to give up her seat to become a Weld County commissioner.

“I’ve always wanted to be a county commissioner,” said Buck, of Windsor. “I’d be humbled and honored to come home to serve the people of Weld County.”

Buck is in her fourth and final term as a state representative, so she’ll soon leave the seat one way or another. The opportunity to serve in Weld County presented itself last week, when Commissioner Sean Conway announced his resignation.

A vacancy committee will decide Conway’s successor.
