PUEBLO – In his first ever run for public office, former Colorado State Fair General Manager and Deputy State Agriculture Commission Chris Wiseman was elected to Pueblo County’s open Commissioner seat. Wiseman, a Democrat, defeated Republican newcomer Zach Swearingen who is a former Navy Seal, combat veteran and owner of a gun range.

Wiseman said he is eager to get to work for the people of Pueblo County.

Former State Fair General manager Chris Wiseman was elected as County Commissioner for Pueblo’s 3rd Commissioner District.”This is a little different but I’m excited about the plans I have, I’m excited to get to work and I’m excited about Pueblo’s future more than anything,” Wiseman said.

He wants to address the homeless situation in Pueblo right away, and also has plans to promote the region’s agricultural production and to encourage the development of more manufacturing jobs in the community.
