New leadership elected to Apex, Arvada Fire boards


Based on the inital vote totals Liz Tomsula, Stephanie Allen and Ken Harrell have been elected to the Apex Parks and Recreation District Board of Directors May 8.

The three received the most votes in a field of nine candidates — Tomsula with 406, Allen with 406, and Harrell with 337.

Official results will be announced May 17, due to requirements of the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act, which mandates a later deadline to receive absentee ballots from uniformed and overseas citizens eligible to vote in the Board election. After the official results have been certified on May 17, candidates will be notified if a recount is required.

The three newly elected board members will be sworn in at the regular Board meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. May 17 at the Apex Center, 13150 W. 72nd Ave., Arvada.

Two current Board members , Vicki Pyne and Vice President Jeff Glenn,  were elected in 2016 and and have terms ending in May 2020.
