On the Issues

We care about Routt County and the following issues are critical this election year.  We’d also like to hear what matters to you as well – let us know here.

COVID-19 & The Public Health Order

It’s time to lift the public health orders immediately and allow our restaurants and businesses to resume normal operations. The state government and the Routt County Public Health Commission have continued to rely on case counts to justify onerous restrictions on businesses, restaurants, recreation, and hospitality operations, and as well as prohibiting larger events from taking place. While this approach made sense in the early stages of the pandemic, when there was limited data about COVID-19, we now have plenty of data and trend analysis that shows hospitalization rates and mortality rates within the state and Routt County are low and very manageable – o.o1% each for those who have been tested. https://www.covid19routtcounty.com/

Conservationism

The Republican Party is the pioneer of environmentalism, with President Theodore Roosevelt as the founding father. The Party affirms the moral obligation to be good stewards of our natural resources and the environment, at local, state, and national levels – as our environments are intertwined and reliant on each other. Senator Cory Gardner worked hard to secure the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act, which uses revenues from energy development to provide $1.9 billion per year for five years to provide maintenance for facilities and infrastructure in our national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, recreation areas, and American Indian schools. The law also will use about $900 million per year in royalties from offshore oil and natural gas to permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund to invest in conservation and recreation opportunities.  Source: https://www.nps.gov/subjects/legal/great-american-outdoors-act.htm
