Future Leaders, Flashbacks and Scholarships

Meeting with the people of Colorado, especially those from our district is a favorite part of my job.  It is a hoot when constituents come by to visit and see what the legislature is working on.  One of the best parts of my job is to introduce future leaders to the legislature. 

This week we had two future leaders shadow us.  Jake Schmidt from Chaparral High School and Anker Eisenmann from Falcon 49 High School.
