Unofficial results from the North Metro Fire District’s Board of Directors election show Peter Billera and Richard Miller returning to serve three-year.
The results will be officially confirmed on May 11, once the eight-day window closes for absentee ballots to be received from uniformed and overseas citizens.
Both Billera and Miller have served on North Metro Fire’s board since 2018, with Miller presiding as board president and Billera as vice president.
Billera is a former firefighter who resides in Broomfield with his family. Miller is retired from a career in law enforcement and also worked for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. He and his wife have been residents of Broomfield since 2006.
According to the district, 339 ballots were cast. Billera claimed 265 votes and Miller 254, 78% and 75% of the total respectively.
Challenger David Feineman had 107 votes, about 32% of the total.
“Each board election we’ve had more residents seeking a position on the board than we’ve had openings, which demonstrates the engaged community we live and work in,” said North Metro Fire Chief David Ramos. “We are fortunate to have residents interested in serving on our board and helping guide our fire district to be one of the best in the metro area.”
The elected directors will begin serving their term after taking their oath of office at North Metro Fire’s upcoming board meeting on May 17, beginning at 4 p.m. at District Headquarters, 101 Spader Way in Broomfield.
