Christi Coburn’s election experience spans five secretaries of state and five county clerks, and this week she was honored by the Colorado County Clerks Association for her efforts.
Coburn received the Michelle Burton Excellence in Elections Service Award. She was nominated by her boss, Adams County Clerk Stan Martin.
“Christi has shown time again her dedication to the voters, to the integrity of the entire elections process and to my staff,” Martin said. “She has been instrumental in transforming our organization for the better and improving staff morale and our organization processes.”
Her colleagues, he said, call Coburn “Chief.”
The Michelle Burton award honors “those who demonstrate love and extra devotion to the election process.” The other finalists were Jami Goff from Fremont County and Jenny Thomas from Routt County. Both run their county’s elections.
