New Session Jan. 11, First Town Hall Jan. 14
With every new year comes a new legislative session, and we will kick off the 2012 session this Wednesday, Jan. 11. It should be 120 very exciting days at the Capitol, as we wrestle with any number of challenges - jobs and the economy, education, energy and the environment, public health and safety, election issues, civil rights and more.

Also, I hope you'll be able to join me on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 10:15 a.m. for our first town hall meeting of the session. The meeting will be held at the Meadows Branch of the Boulder Public Library, 4800 Baseline Road, and I'll start by talking about key issues and bills I'll be sponsoring in 2012. Health care will be one of the key issues, so I've invited Pete Leibig, President and CEO of Clinica Health Services, to be our guest speaker.
As always, we'll leave plenty of time during the meeting for comments and questions, and I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas on Saturday and throughout the session. Town halls provide a great opportunity for us to meet in person, but if you can't make the meeting, feel free to pass your thoughts along during the session. Your input can help us learn more about the issues that mean the most to you, whether it's by bringing something big to our attention or helping us do a better job with the details of a broad issue.
All the best, Rollie
