CONNIE A. TRUJILLO
Saguache County Treasurer
Connie A. Trujillo was born in Del Norte Colorado and was raised in Center where she still resides. She has a 24 year old son, Jacob, who recently graduated from Adams State College.
She graduated from Center High School and then attended Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs. After college, Connie worked for a dentist in Del Norte for a couple of years and then went to work for The First National Bank of Center. She quickly went from working as a bank teller to becoming the bookkeeping supervisor.
After 12 years in banking she was approached about running for Saguache County Treasurer, at the time Gladys Hazard was retiring. Since that time, Connie has attended numerous hours of classes and became accredited in her duties as County Treasurer. This was accomplished through Colorado State College. She continues to meet her recertification duties through Mesa State College. Along with the duties of Saguache County Treasurer, come the duties of Public Trustee. The Public Trustee handles all foreclosures and releases on Deeds of Trust.
"The past seventeen years have been a very rewarding experience for me. I have met so many wonderful, interesting people and have learned so much. Each year the laws change in all areas of government and how we process our work. My job continues to interest and challenge me daily. I feel extremely blessed to not only live in the beautiful County, but also to be able to serve the citizens of Saguache County. I wish to publicly thank each citizen of the county who has believed in me, supported me, and know that I will continue my best to serve each of you."
Connie has served as district
chairman for the Colorado County Treasurer's Association, is an active
member of the GIS-GPS board, the Colorado County Treasurer's Association,
Public Trustee's Association, as well as a Colorado Notary Public.

I have over 20 years' experience in County Government. I have been responsible for large budgets and have supervised several employees in various departments. I am State Certified in elections and have been trained on the new Dominion Voting System which will be in place for the next 7 years and is used by most of the 64 counties in the state. We will conduct two elections this year, the Primary Election in June and General Election in November.
" We have reached out to our schools in Saguache County to encourage juniors and seniors to get registered to vote and become involved in the communities they are about to become part of.
" We work hard to elevate voter trust and protect the integrity of elections. Make sure your voter registration is up-to-date at www.GoVoteColorado.com.
We are dedicated to putting citizens and services first! By that I mean being able to temper the best customer service with the most up-to-date technology available. Thanks in no small part to the dynamic team I work with, we are changing "customer experience" expectations.
I want to convey my deepest admiration to Jane,
Desiree, Ben and Dominique for their commitment & work ethic.
I'm proud to be a part of this team! We are all team players; We are
all "user friendly"; We initiate action.

Saguache County Sheriff
Prior to being elected Sheriff in November of 2014 Dan was employed with the Saguache County Sheriff's Office for over 17 years and was the undersheriff for 9 years of this time. He had been a Sergeant and a Lieutenant with the Sheriff's Office. He was also employed by the Center Police Department for 9 months, 4 of those months as their interim Chief while they looked for a new Chief of Police.
Dan believes that Saguache County deserves to have "Prompt and Professional Service" from their Law Enforcement/Peace Keepers and has pledged to do everything possible to provide that and believes that everyone should be held accountable for their actions.
Dan embraces the concept, that together the Citizens and Law Enforcement can and will work together for a better place to live.
