GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” A Denver, Colorado visit by President Obama to announce the new economic stimulus package has forced U.S. Senator Michael Bennet to change his plans for a Western Slope visit.

Bennet was going to stop by the Garfield County Commissioners during their regular meeting on Tuesday from noon to 1 p.m. The commissioners meet on Tuesday this week because of President’s Day.
