Our great state is about to be embroiled in some serious political discussions with a statewide election season about to descend on us. Before we are all enmeshed in those discussions, I just wanted to issue a heartfelt “thank you” to our elected state senator, Ellen Roberts.
During each of her terms as state representative and now senator, she has consistently proved that she can rise above the fray and propose workable solutions to the various problems that seem to arise here in Colorado as well as our corner of the state.
Her current work encompasses many different directions, but I am most impressed with her work on the wildfire issue. Her leadership on this issue that impacts everyone in our state is vital. I am proud to be her friend and to have her represent Southwest Colorado in the way true leaders should. If you get a chance in the next few months, give her a pat on the back. She truly deserves it.
