The new Jefferson County commissioner won't have to move far in January.
Faye Griffin, Jeffco's Republican treasurer, won a close race in District 1 against term-limited state Sen. Sue Windels, an Arvada Democrat.
"I was pleased I won," Griffin said. "That's always pretty neat."
Griffin said she's been attending budget hearings since her election victory. The 2009 budget will be tough for the commissioners, and Griffin will have to get up to speed quickly.
