DENVER (AP) — A longtime Weld County educator is being sworn in as the Legislature’s newest member.
Dave Young was appointed to the state House to fill a vacancy created when Democratic Rep. Jim Riesberg of Greeley was named Colorado insurance commissioner.
Young is taking the oath of office on Thursday representing eastern Greeley, Garden City and Evans.
Young has taught junior high in Greeley and is a faculty member of the University of Colorado-Denver’s online education program.
