Officials take oath of office

Diane Mitsch Bush and Mike Kerrigan join incumbents for wearing-in

A standing-room-only crowd witnessed the swearing in of numerous county officials Tuesday at the Routt County Courthouse Annex. More than 30 people attended the brief 8 a.m. ceremony, during which Routt County Court Judge James Garrecht solemnly swore in newly elected Commissioner Diane Mitsch Bush and Assessor Mike Kerrigan. Garrecht also renewed the oaths of office for re-elected Clerk and Recorder Kay Weinland, Surveyor Ridgway "Skidge" Moon and Coroner Rob Ryg. Treasurer Jeanne Whiddon renewed her oath last week.
