Heather Graham, a Republican member of the city council, won the mayoral race in Pueblo, Colorado, defeating Democrat incumbent Mayor Nick Gradisar.

Despite the city’s liberal leanings, Graham’s message resonated with voters, leading to her victory with 62.9% of the vote.

She emphasized the need for change and expressed her eagerness to address citizens’ concerns.

“This community that we love has been going in the wrong direction the last few years. I just can’t sit back and do nothing,” Graham said. “My short time in office has shown me how change is possible and not enough is happening.”

Graham’s win marks the first time a woman has been elected mayor in Pueblo, and she aims to focus on providing solutions to the community’s challenges during her term.

“The first female mayor, that’s exciting … it’s been a long run. I’ve had lots of help along the way and I’m excited to carry this title for the next four years,” she said.

“I think that people have been dissatisfied with the leadership over the last five years and they’re ready for a change,” she added.

“I’m surrounded by tons of citizens who had concerns that they brought to me and hopefully over the next four years, we’re able to do something about it,” she said.

“I’m most looking forward to taking the concerns of the constituents and actually providing solutions to the problems that they’re having,” Graham said.
