A Republican vacancy committee on Thursday elected Shane Sandbridge, a Colorado Springs investment consultant and former police officer, to become the next representative of House District 14. Sandridge will replace state Rep. Dan Nordberg, R-Colorado Springs, who is stepping down in January to take a job as regional administrator of the Small Business Administration.
