STATE Representative-elect Matthew Martinez has been assigned to two committees in his inaugural session in the Colorado Legislature.
Martinez will serve as vice chair of the Colorado House Education Committee and will also serve on the Agriculture, Water and Natural Resources Committee, according to appointments released by Colorado House Speaker-designate Julie McCluskie.
Martinez defeated Carol Riggenbach in the Colorado House District 62 race in the November midterm election. Martinez will replace Donald Valdez in representing the San Luis Valley and parts of southern Colorado in the state legislature.
