2014 Voters' Guide to Water Issues

September 2014

Dear Voter,

Roaring Fork Conservancy is pleased to present our third Voters’ Guide to Water Issues in the Roaring Fork Watershed. The 2014 Colorado Water Plan is a statewide priority and further elevates the importance of water in Colorado as we plan for the future of our water resources. Roaring Fork Conservancy remains focused on watershed restoration projects, river science, water policy, and helping citizens stay informed of current water issues.

Knowledgeable elected officials helps us protect our vital water resources. With the upcoming election, we wanted to give citizens an opportunity to hear from candidates on local water issues and their proposed solutions.

Roaring Fork Conservancy asked candidates in local, state, and federal races for their responses to two water related questions. This pamphlet presents 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. Roaring Fork Conservancy does not endorse any of the candidates. Their un-edited responses are presented as submitted.

We encourage you to vote, whether 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.


Rick Lofaro
Executive Director
