Senator Gail Schwartz in Salida

Hey, we did it!  Got the best State Senator in Colorado re-elected.  Shouldn’t have even been close, but it was that kind of crazy year.

Join Gail on Tuesday evening to celebrate her re-election and also that with 3A’s passage, her B.E.S.T. legislation will help build a new High School in Salida.

Snacks and a cash bar will be available; no RSVP is necessary.
