AVON — The Colorado Republican State Convention review and the Eagle County Republicans Central Committee meeting is Thursday at 6 p.m. in the town council chambers.
The monthly meeting will include public discussion of the Republican State Convention, delegate allocation and Central Committee business. Alex Beinstein, running for a seat in Congress representing Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, will also be there to meet county Republicans and answer questions.
Beinstein, 27, is running for his first office position and is running against Rep. Scott Tipton, who is seeking a fourth term.
He will be talking about key voting issues including education, bringing wealth and jobs back to the district as well as Tipton’s voting record on some of these issues.
“My whole argument is if you follow the Constitution where the state and localities are really empowered,” Beinstein said, “we as Coloradans can make the decisions about how to use our energy best, and that can bring all kinds of jobs back.”
The 3rd Congressional District is made up of most of the western part of the state, including Eagle County.
“We really have to focus on, if you work hard, you should be able to keep the fruits of your labor,” Beinstein said. “People across the district work really hard; the problem’s not with the people, it’s with the policies coming out of Washington.”
In addition to bringing more wealth to the district and the county, he sees Interstate 70 funding and water rights for resorts as some of the major issues facing Eagle County. He also wants to open the discussion on term limits.
“You don’t want these people who stay in Washington forever and then go make seven figures as a lobbyist,” Beinstein said. “People are really hungry for a change.”
