Gardner Continues Colorado Farm Tour on the Eastern Plains

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today released the below statement following another successful day on his Second Annual Colorado Farm Tour.

 

Last week, Gardner traveled the Western Slope and visited Craig, Meeker, New Castle, Palisade, Norwood, Dove Creek, Cortez, Pagosa Springs, and La Jara where he toured nine different farms and ranches. This week, Gardner continues his Farm Tour on the Eastern Plains. Today, he stopped in Otis, Sterling, Julesburg, Holyoke, and Yuma, and will visit Burlington, Hugo, Kit Carson, Eads, Trinidad, Blanca, Monte Vista, Walsenburg, Rocky Ford, Las Animas, Ordway, Pueblo, and Cañon City in the coming days.

 

“I continued my Second Annual Colorado Farm Tour on the Eastern Plains with stops in Otis, Sterling, Julesburg, Holyoke, and Yuma today,” said Gardner. "Growing up in Yuma and working at my family’s farm implement dealership, I developed an understanding of how agriculture is a way of life for so many Coloradans. Farms and ranches across the Centennial state play a major role in Colorado’s economy, and that's why I value the opportunity to meet with Colorado’s farmers and ranchers to discuss how Washington-born policies affect their businesses. I look forward to traveling around the Eastern Plains and stopping in Burlington, Hugo, Kit Carson, Eads, Trinidad, Blanca, Monte Vista, Walsenburg, Rocky Ford, Las Animas, Ordway, Pueblo, and Cañon City in the days ahead."
