There's a new face in the Colorado State Senate as of Saturday, representing District 27 in Arapahoe County, after Representative Jack Tate was selected to fill a vacancy.
"Experience in the House and an extensive background in business and engineering, along with the high marks he receives from Republican colleagues, means that Senator-elect Tate can be an impact player for us right away," said Senate President Bill Cadman following Tate's selection by a vacancy committee. "We expect him to step right in and play a key role in moving our agenda forward in the 2016 session."
Tate grew up in Nashville but has lived in Centennial for almost 20 years. He attended Duke University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering. He continued his education at Vanderbilt University, the University of Missouri and the University of Colorado Denver, completing work for an MBA in Marketing, as well as a Master of Science in Finance. In the House he served on the Business Affairs and Labor Committee and the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee.
