PUEBLO, Colo. — The Colorado District Attorneys’ Council has a new president after its former leader resigns.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports 10th Judicial District Attorney Jeff Chostner again will take the reins of the council, replacing Stan Garnett who decided to resign and take a senior partner position at a private law firm in Denver.

Garnett resigns two years into his third and final term. The resignation is effective March 1.

The council asked Chostner to serve as interim president until the end of the 12-month term this September since he was the immediate past president.

The Colorado District Attorneys’ Council is a statewide organization with a mission to promote issues in the best interest of public safety. The council lobbies the Legislature on criminal-justice bills.
