We are taking the tact of meeting with the state legislators about our local projects. In most instances, these individuals are not the ones that we work with to bring the projects to fruition. We work with the city and county transportation engineers and planners, and with CDOT to help push projects along. At any given time, we often have 15 different projects in the works…not because we are gluttons for punishment, but because you usually can’t get traction on a given project from start to finish in a linear way. Instead, you push a bit here, a bit there until all the planets align and we get a result. We are keeping our representatives and senators informed because transportation is another element of how they represent us. The attached files highlight our current Jefferson County elected officials at the state legislature level.
Besides, it’s great to take the opportunity to get involved. Many things are happening in our county, and YOU can have a voice in their outcome.
