Delegates and Republicans from across House District 47 gathered in Fowler Monday night, at the Blackburn Community Center, to fill the vacancy established by the resignation of former State Representative Clarice Navarro. Two candidates were seeking the office, Tamra Axworthy of Pueblo and Judy Reyher of Swink. In a vote of 6-5, Judy Reyher came out as the night’s victor and will be finishing out Navarro’s term.

It is with humble gratefulness that I step up to serve as your representative to the Colorado House to fill Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff’s previously vacant HD47 seat. I hope to continue to serve you as well as her.

I am excited to see Clarice represent us on national matters and expect to see her star continue to shine. Thank you all, and I will keep you posted!

Judy is a fifth-generation Coloradoan, being born in Trinidad. Growing up Judy was heavily involved in 4-H and is a graduate of Southern Colorado State College (now CSU-Pueblo). Judy is a small business owner, and lifelong long Republican, who is ready to continue the good fight up at the State Capitol.
