Read 2012 Voters' Guide Online
Roaring Fork Conservancy is pleased to present its second Voters’ Guide to Water Issues in the Roaring Fork Watershed. Over the past several years, Roaring Fork Conservancy has been working to help citizens take action around water issues. The 2012 drought has underscored the importance of water in Colorado as many rivers and streams ran dry this summer.
Having knowledgeable elected officials helps us protect our vital water resources. With the upcoming election, we wanted to give citizens an opportunity to hear thoughts from candidates on local water issues and proposed solutions.
Roaring Fork Conservancy asked candidates in local races for county commissioner, Colorado House and Senate, and the U.S. House for their responses to two questions. Our goal is to present a non-biased forum for candidates to express their qualifications and platforms on water issues affecting the Roaring Fork Watershed and the state of Colorado. We present these un-edited responses from the candidates, and Roaring Fork Conservancy does not endorse any of the candidates.
We encourage you to vote, whether you vote by mail or at a polling place on November 6th. Your voice is an important part of helping us bring people together to protect our rivers.
