McNulty Appoints Witwer to Reapportionment Commission

Monday, Speaker of the House Frank McNulty announced the appointment of former Republican State Rep. Rob Witwer of Genesee to the Colorado Reapportionment Commission.

“Rob is a dedicated state servant who will do what’s best for the people of Colorado,” said McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch.

Witwer was appointed to represent House District 25 in 2005. He was elected to serve a full term in 2006, winning over 56 percent of the vote. During his time in the House, Witwer built a reputation of working with Democrats and Republicans.

“People are tired of partisanship, especially in the redistricting and reapportionment process,” Witwer added. “Hopefully this commission can work together to find an outcome that is fair and equitable for all Coloradans, whether Democrat, Republican or independent.”

The Reapportionment Commission is made up of eleven members, and is charged with redrawing legislative district boundaries. The Speaker of the House and House Minority Leader each appoint one member as do the Senate Majority and Minority Leaders. The governor appoints three members of the commission, and the Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court appoints the final four members.
