State Rep. Susan Beckman resigns post to join Trump administration


DENVER — Another state lawmaker has resigned at the Colorado General Assembly.

Rep. Susan Beckmam (R-Araphaoe) announced she is stepping down to join the Trump administration. It is not immediately clear where she will work but it appears it will be a Colorado-based job.

“In this role, I’ll continue to serve Colorado, and I’ll actually be just down the street,” Beckman said on the House floor Friday.

Beckman is the second lawmaker this week to resign. Senator Lois Court announced her resignation due to health reasons. Rep. Chris Hansen has already been appointed to Court’s old seat.

A vacancy committee will soon name Hanson’s and Beckman’s replacement in the House.

As the Fox 31 Problem Solvers highlighted earlier this week, over 20 percent of the General Assembly has now received their title initially through an appointment and not through an election.
