Senate Minority Leader Chris Holbert on May 2 announced his resignation from the State Senate, effective May 31.
In preparation for his resignation, Holbert will step down as Senate Minority Leader on May 15. The minority leader and his wife will be moving to Florida to be closer to family and to further pursue their private-sector careers, according to Monday’s announcement from Colorado Senate Republicans.
“I am grateful to the Senate Republican Caucus for electing me to serve as Leader for six of the eight years that I can serve in the Colorado Senate,” Senator Holbert said in the May 2 release. “We have a great team that is focused on making Colorado more affordable, expanding education opportunities, and prioritizing public safety.”
The Senate Minority Caucus will meet upon adjournment on the final day of the legislative session to elect the next Senate Minority Leader.
