Palmer Lake, Calhan mayors win re-election

The mayors of Palmer Lake and Calhan won re-election in Tuesday's municipal elections.

In Calhan, Mayor Cameron Chaussee bested David Kline, winning 91 votes over Kline's 11 votes, according to results released by the town clerk.

Unseemly allegations against Kline surfaced late last month. He was found guilty in 4th Judicial District Court in June 2015 of disorderly conduct after repeatedly calling a black woman a racial slur at a Calhan gas station about a year earlier. He also has broadcast on social media his distrust of law enforcement, and he's had run-ins with local police. Kline has not responded to Gazette efforts to reach him.

Calhan voters also elected four town trustees who were running unopposed: newcomer Robert Levy and incumbents Roger Lemesany, Tyler Chaussee and Mike Osborne,

Palmer Lake Mayor John Cressman received 205 votes, beating out Cimarron Hills firefighter Alex Farr, who garnered 109 votes, and business advisor Ken Dickinson, who received 78 votes, according to unofficial results

Three incumbent trustees - Bob Mutu, Glant Havenar and Mitch Davis - appeared to have also won re-election. Newcomer Gary Faust garnered the most of any trustee candidate, taking one of four available seats, unofficial results provided by the town clerk show.

Here are the preliminary results of the Palmer Lake trustee race:

- Mitch Davis: 218 votes

- Mike Elliot: 157 votes

- Glant Havenar: 222 votes

- Lawrence Nagle: 139 votes

- Gary Faust: 247 votes

- Bob Mutu: 212 votes

Results of the elections were not available until late Tuesday night.
