The superintendent of the Summit school district will replace resigning Democratic Rep. Christine Scanlan in the state House of Representatives.
According to a report in Sunday's Summit Daily, Millie Hamner was chosen by a District 56 vacancy committee.
Hamner will be replaced in her job as the Frisco-based school district superintendent by her top assistant. She had previously announced that she would retire on July 1, 2011.
Hamner has been a West Slope educator since 1978. She spent the last ten years in Summit County and the prior 23 in Eagle County.
Scanlan is leaving the legislature to join Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper's staff.
