Salazar to hold planning workshop in Steamboat

U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar will visit Steamboat Springs next week to hold one in a series of regional issues workshops that he is organizing throughout Colorado to develop an agenda for action on projects and issues vital to Colorado’s communities. He has invited local elected officials to brief him about the top priorities for the regions they represent. The senator has divided the state into 10 planning regions, and by holding meetings in each region, it will enable him to identify concerns and priorities for every part of Colorado.

Information gathered at these workshops will be compiled, and Salazar will use it to develop his legislative agenda in Washington, D.C.

“Coloradans know best what they need in order to improve their lives, their communities and their land,” Salazar said in a prepared statement.

The Steamboat Springs meeting will be at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in Olympian Hall.
