Reiner to lead state’s association of county clerks
DENVER — Mesa County Clerk Sheila Reiner has taken on a new job.
Not to worry, though, the lifelong county resident hasn’t left her old one. No, Reiner has officially taken the reins as this year’s president of the Colorado County Clerks Association.
Reiner, a Republican who is running for re-election as Mesa County clerk and recorder, has already spent much time working with the association.
Last year, she was on the association’s governing panel and helped draft some sweeping new election reform measures, which the Colorado Legislature approved last year.
Reiner has run more than 30 elections during her career. She has a national certification as an election and registrar administrator through the National Association of Election Officials and Auburn University.
She also is a member of the Statewide Voter Registration Advisory Board, the National Postal Task Force and the Uniform Voting Systems Advisory Board.
Reiner was born in Collbran and grew up on a sheep farm near Loma. She and her husband of 20 years, Utah Reiner, have four children and five grandchildren.
