Gardner spends day in Logan, Morgan and Yuma counties
Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., spent Monday, Oct. 9, meeting with constituents on the Eastern Plains.
“Meeting constituents and local leaders to discuss how I can help them make sure their local communities and businesses succeed is one of the most important parts of my job,” said Gardner. “Whether it’s finding a way forward on an issue like Bonny Reservoir or seeing how Colorado’s agriculture processing plants contribute to the local economy, it’s important to travel the state and speak to Coloradans face-to-face.”
Gardner started the day in Wray in Yuma County for a meeting with the South Fork River Restoration Coalition to discuss a variety of local issues including the Bonny Reservoir and the South Fork Republican River. The group discussed ways Gardner can help bridge the divide between local stakeholders and the federal agencies involved in the issue.
Gardner continued: “Growing up in Yuma, I went to Bonny Reservoir as a kid and know all of the benefits it provided for the people of northeastern Colorado. I will continue to work with the local stakeholders and advocate on their behalf when it comes to their dealings with the federal government agencies. Colorado knows best when it comes to managing Colorado water, and we can not let Washington bureaucrats supersede decisions made on the local level.”
