Green leading in Brighton City Council race

Posted

Tom Green is poised to add Brighton City Councilor to his resume, according to early tallies of votes on Election Day.

Green is facing retired legal secretary Marisa Nickerson and insurance producer Sherri Pollack in a bid for the vacant Ward 1 seat.

In unofficial results, Green has 1,515 votes. That's 52% of total votes. Nickerson had 771 votes and Pollack 646 votes as of 12 p.m. Nov. 9. Ballots continue to be tallied.

Green would replace former Councilor Tim Watts, who resigned May 20. Watts was elected in 2020 as one of two representatives from Brighton's Ward. That term is set to expire in 2023, meaning Tuesday's winner Green will need to run for the seat again in a year.

Green said he is likely to do that and he is eager to work with the other Brighton councilors.

"I want to work hard with the other members to get my issues across," Green said Tuesday.

Those issues include supporting the Brighton police, helping to fix traffic issues and doing everything they can to improve the quality of life in the city, he said.

Green is a member of the 27J School Board of Directors and chair of the Adams County Board of Adjustment. In his campaign profile, Green said he hopes to see more retail and dining opportunities in Brighton and would promote development.

"We can bring better-paying, quality jobs to Brighton, residents will not have to hit the highway every morning to reach their employer," he wrote. "A commute just down the street is much better than an hour every day in traffic driving to work."

Election results will be updated on election night, Nov. 8, and, as necessary, on Nov. 9 or later. Check back for the latest results.
