Robert V. Blum

Robert V. Blum (1922-1932)

The election of 1922 was hotly contested, there were six announced candidates, including Sheriff Euler and two of his deputies. Robert V. Blum, a native of Longmont and prominent local businessman, was prevailed upon by the Democratic Party to run for Sheriff. In addition to his occupation as a clothier and president of the Commonwealth Industrial Bank, Blum served at various times as president of the Chamber of Commerce, Chief of Longmont's Fire Department, and president of the local school board.

In 1926, Sheriff Blum and his deputies conducted more than 300 raids and liquor investigations, and never carried a weapon on duty. By 1927 the Office had a staff of six deputies.

Sheriff Blum stood for re-election to an unprecedented sixth term in 1932, but was defeated by Republican George Richart. He returned to Longmont and was selected to represent Boulder County in the State Legislature.

He died in Long Beach, CA. in 1956. Mr. Blum and his wife Kate are buried in Longmont's Mountain View Cemetery.
