Welcome to White River Forest Alliance Greetings!
WRFA would like to send out a great big THANK YOU to Congressman Jared Polis and all his staff for putting together a true public comment forum, also to the all the panelists that participated and to all of the concerned local citizens that turned out for the meetings last week. The turnout in Boulder and Breckenridge was great and the turnout in Edwards was incredible. I was personally overwhelmed with the response of the WRFA supporters and am sure it left a lasting impression on everyone in attendance. This turned into an amazing display of democracy in action with WRFA's grass roots efforts VS Hidden Gems 'whatever it takes' (money), which makes it feel that much more successful.
Thanks to John Hembel for spearheading the t-shirt effort that created the 'Sea of White' of supporters who decided to wear our t-shirts at all of the meetings.
I wanted to send out a special thanks to Jack Albright, VP of WRFA for personally taking the time to sit on the panel at all three meetings. His commitment to the process and thoughtful comments deserves many thanks!
There is still a lot of work to do regarding this and Congressman Polis and his staff has urged everyone to continue providing comments and opinions on the specific areas that the Hidden Gems proposal impacts. Keep your emails, letters and phone calls flowing to their office. Here is some contact info for them:
