The Democratic candidate for House District 17, Tony Exum Sr., will be hosting his first town hall meeting Tuesday, June 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Sand Creek Library.

Exum jumped into the race for HD 17 in March. Last year, the retired firefighter ran an unsuccessful at-large bid for Springs City Council. This time he will be facing one-term incumbent Rep. Mark Barker, a Republican, in November.

HD 17 covers the southeastern part of Colorado Springs.

We had written about the Democrats' frustration over their seeming inability to find a candidate for this district. So Exum's entrance into this race was a welcome development for county Democrats. Currently the state House is held by a single-vote Republican majority, and many observers believe that the Democrats play strong in HD 17.
