Sheriff Bill Elder seeks second term, and political races shaping up

Pam Zubeck (Colorado Springs Independent)- Sheriff Bill Elder will seek a second term in El Paso County, having filed for re-election in the 2018 election way back on March 24.

But there does appear to be a snag: Elder’s campaign candidate affidavit filed with the Secretary of State lists his residential phone as a number that rings to his office at the Sheriff’s Office. That’s curious, given that campaigns and official business aren’t supposed to mix.

Reached at that phone number, Elder says, “I don’t have a home phone.” Asked if he has a cell phone he could have listed, he says, “I have a personal cell phone, but I’m not putting my personal cell phone on it. I’d get all kinds of crank calls.”
