DENVER (AP) _ Democrats have chosen Colorado Water Conservation
Board Member Bruce Whitehead of Hesperus to replace Jim Isgar in
the state senate.

Isgar left his seat July 20 to join the U.S. Department of Agriculture as the Colorado State Director for Rural Development.

A vacancy committee chose Whitehead to replace him Saturday. A
date wasn't immediately set for him to be sworn in.

Whitehead worked for 25 years for the Colorado Division of Water
Resources and is the executive director of the Southwest and
Animas-La Plata Water Conservation Districts. Gov. Bill Ritter
appointed him last year to serve on the Colorado Water Conservation
Board.
