U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., visited with area officials Friday to hear their concerns and feedback, most notably regarding energy development.

“I need to make personal appearances so I can listen and learn from elected officials and citizens,” Udall said after an open discussion with Moffat County, Routt, Rio Blanco and Jackson County officials at the Moffat County Courthouse.

Top issues local officials discussed with the senator included energy resource development, land use and protection, and health care, among others.

Moffat County commissioner Tom Mathers said he was pleased Udall took time to visit Northwest Colorado.

“It means a lot that they take the time to come to Moffat County instead of like so many others that go to Steamboat,” Mathers said.

Mathers, however, said he hopes that feedback from the county officials to the senator “doesn’t fall on deaf ears.”

“Hopefully some of the things we talked to him about will make a difference,” he said.

This is totally unexceptable he should of talked with the people also. instead he shows up and the paper puts it in after he has left. same back door bs as usual. We the People should have been informed also, He represents all not just Commissioners.

To combat this type of treatment there is only one thing to do - VOTE FOR NO INCUMBENTS.
None of them have proven that they are deserving of our treasured vote.
That being the case, no incumbent will get my vote until such time that they prove to me that they do deserve my vote.
