Nikki Knoebel

— Oak Creek Mayor Nikki Knoebel, a Democrat, has thrown her hat in the ring for the Routt County Board of Commissioners District 1 seat, which is being vacated by Nancy Stahoviak.

Knoebel officially will announce her candidacy at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday on the steps of the Routt County Courthouse.

Knoebel is the second Democrat to announce a run for the seat after South Routt School Board President Tim Corrigan announced his candidacy Jan. 11.

Three Republican candidates have declared their intentions to run for Stahoviak’s District 1 seat, as well. They are Moose Barrows, Brita Horn and Tony Stich.

Stahoviak is a Republican who is stepping down at the end of her current term after almost 20 years in office.

Knoebel could not be reached Tuesday for comment.
