Troxell wins Fort Collins mayor race

Fort Collins voters stuck with a familiar and homegrown candidate for mayor on Tuesday.

Incumbent Mayor Wade Troxell handily won a second two-year term in office, outdistancing challengers Kwon Atlas, Elizabeth Hudetz and Michael Pruznick with 57 percent of the vote.

Troxell celebrated his victory with family and friends at the Moot House, 2626 S. College Ave. A loud cheer from supporters filled a portion of the landmark restaurant when city election results were posted.

In a brief speech, Troxell thanked his family for their support, as well as many volunteers who worked on the campaign.

“This is really about Fort Collins and its future,” he said.

Troxell, 60, built a campaign around his experience on city issues garnered as mayor the last two years as well as eight years prior on City Council representing the southwest part of Fort Collins.

That experience paid off with voters, Troxell said in an interview.
