Gardner Meets with Coloradans Along the Front Range

Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) spent yesterday meeting with constituents in Denver, Golden, and Fort Collins. At the Metropolitan State University of Denver, Gardner met with the Colorado Space Coalition to discuss ways to advance Colorado’s aerospace industry and create more jobs for Coloradans. Recently, the Senate approved two-Gardner authored provisions in the NASA Transition Authorization Act that will help bolster Colorado’s aerospace industry.

Gardner also spoke to the Governor’s Forum on Colorado Agriculture. Gardner has been a leader in the Senate on agriculture and recently gave a speech on the Senate floor about the agriculture crisis in America and the importance of agriculture to Colorado. Gardner also met with the Colorado Health Care Association to hear their input on how best to reform our healthcare system.

Additionally, Gardner met with MillerCoors and the National Association of Manufacturers where he received the National Association of Manufacturers’ Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. At the event, he answered questions from MillerCoors employees and discussed ways to ensure there are additional manufacturing opportunities in Colorado.

Next, Gardner spoke with the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce about how to address burdensome regulations in order to grow the economy and boost job creation in Colorado.

“Washington D.C. cannot operate in a vacuum, and that’s why I’m always eager to meet with Coloradans and gain their input on a variety of issues,” said Gardner. “My discussions with Coloradans on reforming our healthcare system, creating jobs in aerospace and manufacturing, helping our farmers and ranchers succeed, and reining in overreaching regulations provide me with important perspective, and help me bring more of Colorado to Washington. I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet with so many different groups across the Front Range, and I look forward to continuing to meet with Coloradans in the days ahead.”
