Former Colorado Attorney General John Suthers will be the next mayor of Colorado Springs.
Suthers soundly defeated former Colorado Springs mayor Mary Lou Makepace in a runoff election by a two to one margin. He said Tuesday night that he was humbled by the response, but there’s work to be done.
"The challenge is very, very significant," Suthers said. "And so I take delight in the political victory tonight, but tomorrow, we hit the ground running and working very very hard."
