Windsor picks its new mayor, who won with 53.5% of vote

A day after Windsor’s election, we now know who will be the next town mayor.

Barry Wilson won the mayor’s race with 53.5% of the votes to Jason Hallett’s 46.5% in an unofficial count. The vote tally was 4,151 to 3,603.

Both men already serve on the Town Board. Wilson represents District 2, and Hallett will continue serving in the District 6 seat for two more years.

Wilson is also executive director of the nonprofit Poudre River Trail Corridor Inc., and Hallett is retired from the U.S. Marine Corps and the financial adviser field.

Wilson will succeed current mayor Paul Rennemeyer, who is term limited.

Wilson said he’s relieved and ready to move on from the election to town business.

“I think I was the right person for the job, experience wise,” Wilson said, also noting that he thinks this group may become the strongest Town Board that he has worked with.

“I think we have a strong leadership team, and we’re going to have a good, strong board,” he said. “I think people are all going to work together with common goals, and I feel like we are a nonpartisan group as well. I think we can focus on local issues.”
