Bears Ears Patriots event attracts candidates

Local residents receive surprise visit from CU regent contender

The Bears Ears Patriots have been relatively quiet since the June 26 primary election. But, this week members of the local tea party organization returned to coordinating an event for voters to vet local, state and national candidates. On Thursday, the Bears Ears Patriots hosted a barbecue at the Moffat County Fairgrounds covered picnic area, an event designed to provide local residents with the opportunity to talk to candidates in a causal atmosphere. The event attracted eight different candidates based in Craig, Pueblo and Carbondale, including an unexpected visit from Glen Gallegos, a Grand Junction Republican running for the University of Colorado Board of Regents in District 3.
