At this year's Annual Convention, we had two great sessions which predicted the political landscape with the entrance of the new legislature. The big question is... Who was spot on?
We have circled back to this January to reissue on-demand videos from Floyd Ciruli's "Gridlock in Washington & A New Direction in Colorado" and our panel discussion with Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser, Executive Director of the Department of Natural Resources Dan Gibbs, CWC President John Currier and Denver Water's Government Relations Expert, Chris Piper.
High Line Canal Clean-Up Re-Scheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2019
Volunteers and segment leaders are needed to clear trash and debris from the eleven mile stretch of the canal that runs through the city of Aurora. The goal for the day is to reduce the amount of trash being discharged from the Canal to Sand Creek and to Toll Gate Creek. Along with the benefits from the outdoor exercise, the event is also an excellent opportunity to learn about the problems caused from littering and the importance of protecting our waterways.
To register, click here and scroll down to the High Line Canal opportunity. Interested people will need to create a volunteer profile. This is needed to help organizers communicate with volunteers.
The volunteer registration website has a downloadable Volunteer waiver. Every volunteer is required to have a waiver completed prior to working on the High Line Canal. If the portal is proving cumbersome or if you have questions, please feel free to contact Lottia Villalba

Established 33 years ago, Kogovsek & Associates, Inc. continues to provide affordable, effective support for Western interests on responsible water resource management, development and conservation, use and protection of our public lands, Native American issues and access to federal support for related programs.
The small, Colorado-based firm was founded by the late Ray Kogovsek, a former legislator and Congressman who passed away in 2017. This year, I completed the purchase of the firm and am honored to now serve as its President.
I believe the breadth of our client history speaks clearly on behalf of our ability to navigate the complex legislative and administrative processes, particularly at the federal level. So does the long-standing nature of our client portfolio.
Kogovsek & Associates’ priorities remain a close working relationship with its client family, and maintaining strong working relationships on both sides of the political aisle.
