Campaign themes

In an interview with The Standard Blade, Hiller cited district finances, school security, class sizes and vocational education as his primary concerns.[3]

What was at stake?

Five seats on the board were at stake in this election. District 2 incumbent Kristi Crisman did not file for re-election, but no other candidates filed for the vacant seat either, which left it open to a write-in candidate. Rick Doucet ran a write-in campaign and won the seat.[4] District 4 incumbent Joan Kniss was ineligible to run for another term because of Amendment 17 to the Colorado Constitution, which states that no "elected official of district....shall serve more than two consecutive terms in office."[5] Newcomer Michael K. Landwehr ran unopposed for the open seat. Districts 5 and 6 incumbents Patrick D. Day and Teresa R. Gallegos faced a total of four challengers, while District 7 incumbent Gregory Piotraschke also ran unopposed for re-election.
