    Western Colorado Congress.

    They are approximately one year older than me, so I can’t say that I started the group. I think some pretty cool cats did though, because they fight to ensure that extractive industries don’t destroy the areas that we cherish.

    As a former DNC employee, I think it is pretty sweet that the president of WCC, Gretchen Nicholoff, is active in the Democratic Party in Delta County. I always applaud individuals with influence in advocacy groups who get involved in partisan politics.

    Also, how awesome is Marv Ballantyne’s hat? Combine that with his mad banjo skills, I think this Board of Directors is pretty awesome.
