The primary-election endorsement that Louisville's Paul Weissmann's is getting from fellow Democrats for his bid to be the next Boulder County treasurer is something of a formality.

Weissmann, a former state lawmaker who represented eastern county districts in the state Senate and House, doesn't have to defeat any other Democratic candidates during today's primary election to advance to November's general election ballot.

And "winning" the Democratic primary continues what's turned out to be the political equivalent of a free ride toward Weissmann being sworn in as county treasurer next January, replacing term-limited Bob Hullinghorst.

Weissmann's likely not going to be alone among area candidates being unopposed in their races come November.


That's because no Republicans or members of other political parties are candidates for Boulder County treasurer, or several other Boulder and Weld County races this year. And no one who's unaffiliated with a party has announced they will try to petition onto the fall ballot for those posts, although such candidates have until July 10 to gather and submit signatures .

Weissmann called the lack of competitors "weird and a little bit disappointing."

That, he said, is because "I really like talking about why I chose to do this," and candidates' forums or debates would have given him the opportunity to do that.

"Election campaigns really offer the opportunity to engage people into what's going on" in the offices voters are filling, but unopposed candidates get less opportunity to do that, said Weissmann, who's currently the public trustee for Boulder County, a position that puts him in charge of administering and overseeing property foreclosure proceedings.

Other area office-seekers almost certainly assured of being elected due to lack of opponents in November, include:

• The winner of today's Democratic primary in the Boulder County coroner's race, pitting incumbent Emma Hall against challenger Deron Dempsey.

• The winner of today's Democratic primary in the Boulder County surveyor's race where Sam Knight and Lee Stadele are vying to succeed term-limited County Surveyor Jason Emery, also a Democrat.

• The winner of today's Republican primary in the Weld County clerk's race, where Carly S. Koppes and Tony Trevino are competing to succeed term-limited incumbent Clerk Steve Moreno, also a Republican.

• Incumbent Boulder County Assessor Jerry Roberts, a Democrat who was appointed to fill a vacancy in 2007 and won elections in 2008 and 2010.

• Incumbent state Rep. Mike Foote, a Lafayette Democrat and deputy Boulder County district attorney who won the 2012 contest for the House District 12 seat.

• Incumbent state Rep. Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, a Gunbarrel Democrat and retired intergovernmental affairs director for Boulder County's Board of County Commissioners, in House District 10.

• Weld County District 2 Commissioner candidate Julie Cozad, a Republican and former Milliken mayor pro tem, for the District 2 seat on Weld's Board of County Commissioners now held by Douglas Rademacher, who decided not to seek another term.

• Incumbent Weld County Assessor Christopher Woodruff, a Greeley Republican who was first elected to the office in 2006 and was re-elected in 2010.
