I was stunned and dismayed to read that congressional candidate Lauren Boebert opposes long-sought protections for our hunting, grazing and recreational areas on the Western Slope. In fact, Boebert recently called the CORE Act a “land grab by Denver’s Liberals.” Does she even know what she is talking about? Does she understand that the CORE Act was written by local stakeholders and enjoys broad bipartisan support throughout the 3rd Congressional District? She may have a loud voice, but she doesn’t represent our values. Please vote for Diane Mitsch Bush.
