Well, it’s been another busy summer!
I’ll admit that I’ve made some time to get up into the mountains and enjoy our beautiful state, but I’ve also had plenty of work to keep me going. In addition to general meetings about constituent and policy issues that we might address next session, I’m serving on two interim committees that are each diving deep into big topics.
First, I’m in my third summer on the Opioid and Other Substance Use Disorders committee in which we’re continuing our work to improve prevention, treatment, and recovery services in Colorado. Second, I’m on the Investor-Owned Utility committee in which we are looking at the regulations that govern Xcel Energy and other IOUs to ensure we’re maximizing progress on moving toward clean energy while consumers are protected from any unfair billing practices.
It’s an interesting experience to get involved in so many diverse topics, and I continue to be grateful you all elected me to this crazy job.
One last thing. The Lakewood delegation will be resuming our monthly town halls this month, starting Saturday. September 21st at 10:00am at the West Metro Fire HQ (433 S Allison Pkwy, Lakewood). We’ve invited all of the 2019 Jeffco School Board candidates and the supporting and opposing campaigns for statewide and countywide ballot measures (CC, DD, & 1A).
Our next meetings will be on October 19th and November 16th, same time and location. Then we’ll skip December and start up again in January.
I hope to see you at one or more of the town halls, but if you can’t make it, you can always email me to share your thoughts and questions!
