MEEKER I Emily Tracy, the Democratic candidate for Colorado State Senate District 8, will be walking in Meeker today, visiting with voters about issues important to them.
Tracy will also attend the Natural Resource Tour reception on Thursday evening at the Heritage Culture Center and Museum, plus a meet and greet for Tracy following the reception, at the bar and lounge of the Elk Mountain Inn, 723 Market St.
“Speaking directly with voters is the best way to find out what’s most important to them, to hear what’s working well, and what’s not,” Tracy stated.
“I’ve walked in a number of towns and cities in Senate District 8 this year, and have not only heard concerns about housing and health care costs, but have also heard how much people love living in rural Northwest Colorado. Voters want and expect their government to be responsive to their interests and needs,” she continued.
The Natural Resource Tour, sponsored by the White River and Douglas Creek conservation districts and the Rio Blanco Water Conservancy District, will feature keynote speaker John Stulp at the Thursday reception at 6 p.m.
Stulp is Special Policy Advisor to Gov. John Hickenlooper for water.
Tracy is running against incumbent Sen. Randy Baumgardner.
