Vail Daily letter: Thanks, Rep. Polis
After reading about the recent introduction of the Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act, I wanted to publicly thank Rep. Jared Polis for his work protecting Colorado. I bicycle, ski and hike in the Central Mountains and I cherish being able to share the beauty of the area with all my out-of-state visitors.
Over the past five years, Rep. Polis has worked with countless local stakeholders to ensure that this legislation truly helps to support the local community. This hard work has paid off, garnering the support of everyone from mountain bikers and conservationists to hunters and small-business owners. If passed, the Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act would provide important protections for key watersheds in the Central Mountains and safeguard our ever-valuable Colorado water for local communities and the greater Front Range. The act would also protect some of Colorado’s best fishing streams and preserve valuable wildlife habitat. Thank you, Rep. Polis!
