On January 17, 2020, Colorado State Rep. Susan Beckman (R) announced she was resigning to assume a position within President Trump’s administration. Beckman has not yet announced what position she will assume, nor has President Trump or his administration commented on her resignation. An announcement is expected from the Trump administration next week. Beckman was first elected from House District 38 in 2016 and was re-elected in 2018.
Vacancies in the Colorado state legislature are filled by a vacancy committee consisting of members representing the political party that last held the seat. The person appointed will serve the remainder of Beckman’s term, which ends in November 2020.
Beckman’s successor will be the 21st member of the Colorado General Assembly to be appointed to their position. There are currently eight Colorado state Senators and 12 Colorado state Representatives that were appointed to their respective positions out of the 100 members of the Colorado General Assembly.
