Davidek reported no contributions or expenditures to the Colorado Secretary of State.[3]

What was at stake?

Incumbents Marilyn Flachman and Sharon Whitehair did not file for re-election in 2013. Flachman was ineligible to run for another term because of Amendment 17 to the Colorado Constitution, which says that no "elected official of district....shall serve more than two consecutive terms in office." Newcomers Davidek and Ryan McCoy ran for two seats on the board on November 5, 2013.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one- or two-tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[6] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
