Rio Blanco County Republicans caucused last Saturday in multiple locations around the county where party members chose delegates for the upcoming county assembly. Caucus attendees had an opportunity to hear from the candidates running for Si Woodruff’s county commissioner seat: Mona Avey, Ty Gates, Scott Nielsen and Kai Turner.

Members of the Rio Blanco County Democratic Party also held their caucus last weekend. There are no Democratic candidates running for local office in the coming election.

Next up are the county assemblies. Republicans will meet Mar. 21 at 10 a.m. at CNCC’s Weiss Center, 500 Kennedy Dr., Rangely. Democrats will meet Mar. 28 at 1:30 p.m. at Meeker Public Library, 490 Main St. According to the Secretary of State’s website, “the county assembly is convened to designate county candidates for the primary election and to select delegates to the congressional district assemblies and the state assembly.”
