Sheriff Stan Hilkey May Serve Last Term

It looks like this will be Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey’s last term, this as voters opt to keep term limits.

As of 10:45 Tuesday night, the vote was 51.5% No, and 48.1% Yes.

A relatively close race, but not enough to abolish the term limits for Mesa County Sheriff.

Sheriff Hilkey maintains he spearheaded the issue but that it wasn’t just to keep his job.

There are some ballots that still need to be counted but it doesn’t look as though things will change.

Hilkey’s second term expires after the 2010 election.
