TRINIDAD– With our economy in turmoil, rising job losses, a growing health care crisis, and continuing threats to our national security, our country must confront several difficult challenges in the months ahead. To help prepare to meet these challenges in the 111th Congress, U.S. Senator Ken Salazar invites you to a meeting of elected officials and community leaders at 1:30 pm on December 15, 2008 at Trinidad State Junior College, 600 Prospect Street, Trinidad, CO 81082. The meeting will be conducted in the General Purpose Room at the Sullivan Student Center.
In addition to discussing the national issues that Congress will tackle when it convenes in January, Senator Salazar would like your input on his Regional Plan for the Arkansas River Region, which he has developed over the last four years with the input of local leaders and community members. Senator Salazar’s regional plans identify priorities for his work in the Arkansas River Region on agriculture, public lands, water, community development, transportation, health care and education. At the meeting, Senator Salazar will review progress towards accomplishing the objectives in the plan and would like to hear your thoughts on what other priorities should be included.
Your contributions to this discussion are important. If you are able to attend, please RSVP to Dwight or Angela at the Arkansas River Region office either by phone (719-542-7550) or send email to Dwight_Gardner@salazar.senate.gov or to Angela_Giron@salazar.senate.gov. We hope that you will be able to attend.
Should by chance we face inclement weather, which could cause delays or cancelations in the Senators flight, we will send out a notice of cancelation by email to all that have received this invite.
