Legislative Days at the Capitol Recap
Nearly 40 GJACC members joined us on the 22nd Annual Legislative Days at the Capitol last week. We had the pleasure of spending time with our local legislators Sen. Scott, Rep. Thurlow and Rep. Willett. In addition, this group of GJACC members heard from a wide array of speakers including Governor Hickenlooper, Executive Director of the CO Department of Public Safety Stan Hilkey and Executive Director of the CO Department of Natural Resources Mike King, just to name a few. We enjoyed a nice dinner at the Broker Restaurant, saw the legislature in action and had the least uneventful trip home to date. Click here to view a short video to recap the trip.
