Westminster, Colo., Dec. 1, 2021 – Area business, economic development, and non-profit leaders, and citizens are invited to attend Adams County Regional Economic Partnership’s (AC-REP) 2022 Legislative Preview Breakfast on Dec. 9, 7 to 9:30 a.m., in person, at the city of Northglenn’s new Parsons Theatre.
The Adams County region continues to recover after an uncertain year for businesses due to the lingering effects of COVID-19. With challenges to supply chains and struggles recruiting workforce, now more than ever, it’s crucial that organizations like AC-REP partner with state government to enhance our business environment.
“Decisions and legislation considered during the 2022 state legislative session will impact how quickly our regional businesses recover,” said Lisa Hough, President/CEO of AC-REP. “We support new investments and programs that allow our members to provide for sustainable and prosperous opportunities to the community based on our legislative priorities.”
Attendees will be first to hear about AC-REP’s legislative priorities for the Adams County region and engage in a panel discussion with area legislators. Legislators from the greater Adams County region will share their agendas for the 2022 Legislative Session that will set the stage for business growth.
Area State Legislators scheduled to participate include:
Rep. Adrienne Benavidez, House District 32
Rep. Shannon Bird, House District 35
Rep. Rod Bockenfeld, House District 56
Rep. Lindsey Daugherty, House District 29
Rep. Matt Gray, House District 33
Sen. Barbara Kirkmeyer, Senate District 23
Sen. Dominick Moreno, Senate District 21
Rep. Kyle Mullica, House District 34
Sen. Faith Winter, Senate District 24
Additional speakers at the Legislative Preview include Commissioner Eva J. Henry, Chair of the Adams County Board of County Commissioners and Northglenn Mayor Meredith Leighty.
“To help our members stay informed, the Legislative Preview provides a local opportunity to hear our key regional legislators discuss their plans, priorities, and predictions for the upcoming session,” said Nicole Milo of Centura Health and Co-Chair of AC-REP’s Business Advocacy & Public Policy Committee (BAPP). The BAPP meets bi-weekly during the session to review and take positions on legislation.
AC-REP has again contracted with Sewald Hanfling Public Affairs to serve as its legislative lobbying firm for 2022. The firm provides strategic advocacy and a lobbying engagement plan designed to achieve AC-REP’s legislative goals and support business development objectives.
