Tom Mowle, appointed a couple of years ago by Gov. Bill Ritter, to head up the El Paso County Public Trusteee’s Office, is finding support among Republican and undecided voters.
Mowle is the lone Democratic contender for the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder job. By contrast, three Republicans are vying for the slot, including term-limited Sandra Damron, term-limited county commissioner Wayne Williams, and Charles Corry.
Mowle said he knocked on about 100 houses over the weekend in which the occupants were registered as either Republican or independent. Only three of the people he talked to said they wouldn’t vote for him.
“They were very positive,” said Mowle, who by all accounts, has run an efficient operation at the public trustee’s office, processing millions of dollars in foreclosed real estate.
