What’s happening on Post-Election Day
"The dust is settling and the phone is not ringing.”
Mesa county Clerk and Recorder Sheila Reiner may be having a calmer day than on Election Day, but that doesn't mean work at her office is done.
Mesa county Clerk and Recorder, Sheila Reiner said, "We have three thousand ballots actually that are left over from last night that we didn't get counted that we're counting this morning. So we're going to have an update if not late today then maybe tomorrow."
As things settle down at the elections office, party officials discuss working together and moving forward”
Co-Chair of the Mesa County Democrats, Karl Castleton said, "For the most part I think you have to work across the aisles, I think republicans like Ray Scott and Jared Wright are going to have to work with democrats to get anything done because there going to be the minority in the house. I think getting in the same room, even though some of them have taken losses and some of them have wins, get them in the same room and say okay that's all passed we need to decide how we're going to govern, what are we going to do to make things better."
Secretary of the Mesa County Republicans, Phyllis Hunsinger said,
"I don't think we have a lot of problems working together in Mesa County, this is a very conservative county, we believe in the founding documents we believe in the founding principles and we will continue to fight for those founding principles the freedoms that are guaranteed by our constitution by life liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
As the democrats and republicans come together, their campaign signs are coming down.
"Hopefully candidates will be sensitive and start taking those down quickly, and they might linger, but hopefully the signs and the ads, things like that do come down quickly so people can put this behind them and we can start moving on," said Reiner.
Hunsinger added, "Well we box up the office supplies and get it ready for another day, we're taking those signs down right as we speak."
