Recall winner Herpin honored for service

Kudos to Senator Herpin for his award and his service to Colorado and Colorado Springs!

Originally from the Denver Post's Joey Bunch:

State Sen. Bernie Herpin didn’t waste any time making a name for himself in Denver. Elected in the wake of the recall of Sen. John Morse last September. Herpin on Monday was chosen Legislator of the Year by the Colorado County Clerks Association.

According to a press release from Herpin’s re-election team, he won the prize “because of his ability to lead and reach across party lines to get things done in Denver.”

Herpin faces former state Rep. Mike Merrifield of Colorado Springs, a Democrat, in the general election.
