Thank’s to everyone who joined us for our Roadshow events!
We had a warm welcome from Fort Collins (on a somewhat chilly and rainy night) for our Scorecard town hall discussion. About 25 of us filled the loft area of a busy local restaurant, The Mayor of Fort Collins, including Fort Collins legislators State Senator John Kefalas, Representative Jeni Arndt and Representative Joann Ginal.
We talked about our 2017 legislative scorecard and the expectations for bills in the upcoming 2018 session that will impact women and families, from healthcare to tax policy to water issues. It was a very engaged crowd and I was so excited to meet multiple generations from the area: from about an 8 year old girl who insisted on signing in with her mom, to a couple telling me about working with the Colorado Commission on the Status of Women 40 years ago.
Can't wait to see you on December 5th for our Member and Friends Social to talk about next year's priorities!
