Invoking LBJ, Jim Bensberg announced today that he would not seek — nor would he accept — the chairmanship of the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners in 2010.
The term-limited Bensberg no doubt will be focusing his attention on his efforts to become the county’s new treasurer. He’ll be competing against county clerk Bob Balink, a tough political campaigner who is also term-limited.
Both Bensberg and Balink have prickly dispositions and don’t seem to care much for the media. So this should be a fun race to watch as Election Day approaches.
