Welcome! The 2014 legislative session began January 8, and the people’s work has begun. My door is open, and I am working hard to be the best public servant I can be for you – my neighbors, community, state and country. I serve on three Senate Committees of Reference - Health & Human Services, Local Government (vice-chair) and Business, Labor & Technology, and we have begun to hear bills in our respective committees. I also serve on the Flood Disaster Recovery Study Committee that has developed policies to help our communities and state move forward from the flood disaster of 2013.
To access legislative information and resources, go to the Colorado General Assembly website, www.leg.state.co.us and track bills, watch Senate and House Floor debates, listen to committee hearings, read about state laws and the Constitution, and get the contact information for the 100 state legislators – 35 senators and 65 representatives. Informed and engaged citizens are vital to maintaining a strong and functional representative democracy. It is important that you pay attention to what is going on and hold me and my colleagues accountable. For the next four months, I will be holding town hall meetings on the second Saturday of the month, community conversations on the third Saturday and community issue forums on the fourth Saturday.
Thank you for your support and encouragement in this public service work that I do on your behalf. It is indeed a labor of love to work for the common good. Please keep in touch, be well and have a great Colorado day.
State Senator for the City of Fort Collins (SD-14)
