Democrats select Woodrow to fill vacancy in Colorado House

On February 4, 2020, Steven Woodrow (D) was appointed to fill the vacant District 6 seat in the Colorado House of Representatives. Vacancies in either chamber of the Colorado General Assembly are filled by a committee of members of the political party that last held the seat.

Woodrow’s appointment came after former Colorado representative Chris Hansen (D) resigned on January 21, 2020. Hansen resigned from the state House of Representatives to accept an appointment to the state Senate. Woodrow will complete the remainder of Hansen’s term, which runs until January 2021. All 65 Colorado House seats are up for election in 2020.

The Colorado House has one remaining vacancy, created by Susan Beckman’s (R) resignation to join President Donald Trump’s (R) administration as regional director for the federal Department of Health and Human Services.
