There's a new sheriff in town — and a few other new elected officials to boot.
Arapahoe County's elected officials took their oaths at the county commissioners' chambers in Littleton on Jan. 8, after a November election that saw three incumbent Republicans voted out in favor of Democratic challengers.
Tyler Brown became Arapahoe County's new sheriff, having defeated incumbent Dave Walcher.
"I stand here humbled by the task and the great opportunity to serve the citizens of Arapahoe County," Brown said. "I'm committed to ensuring that Arapahoe County stays one of the safest counties to live, work and raise families."
Joan Lopez became the new clerk and recorder, having defeated incumbent Matt Crane.
"This is the second time I ran for this office," Lopez said. "When I told my daughter I was running again, she cried, because it's a lot of work... but this is my career. This is something I fought for for six years."
PK Kaiser was sworn in as county assessor, having defeated incumbent Marc Scott.
"I'm going to work to make sure the assessor's office is more accessible to everyone in this county," Kaiser said. "I'll play by the rules, and I will never let you down."
Also sworn in:
• District 4 County Commissioner Nancy Jackson, a Democrat, who was re-elected with two-thirds of the vote over Republican challenger Winfred Deal.
• District 2 County Commissioner Nancy Sharpe, a Republican, who narrowly squeezed out a win over challenger Don Strickland.
• County Treasurer Sue Sandstrom, a Republican, who ran unopposed.
• County Coroner Kelly Lear, a Republican, who ran unopposed.
