Steamboat Springs The Routt County Cattlemen's Association will have a unique opportunity to hear the stances that state Senate, House of Representative and Routt County Commission candidates have at its fall meeting today.
Democratic candidate Paul Ohri and Republican candidate Jack Taylor for the Colorado Senate Seat 8, Democratic candidate Jay Fetcher and Republican candidate Al White for the Colorado House of Representative Seat 6 and Democratic candidate Doug Monger and Republican Candidate John Shaw for the Routt County Commission will talk and field questions at the meeting
"It will be an agricultural theme but we can talk about other issues, too," Routt County Cattlemen's Association President Doug Carlson said about the forum.
Lucy Meyring, representing the Colorado Cattlemen's Association, also will present information about Amendment 21, Douglas Bruce's local tax cut proposal, and Amendment 24, which would force a public vote for developments out of specified growth zones and on new growth-area maps.
The CCA is taking a stance against both amendments because officials feel it will hurt agricultural producers. Meyring will explain why.
