Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., is scheduled to host a town hall meeting this week in Craig, as part of a Western Slope tour covering economic recovery projects, his office announced Sunday afternoon.

The town hall meeting, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday in the council chambers at Craig City Hall, 300 W. Fourth St.

The first-term senator also will discuss “how the economic recovery plan is helping to create jobs and spur economic growth in small towns and communities across the state,” according to a news release.

He also is slated to discuss “his recent Senate efforts to reform education and improve Colorado public schools, expand access to quality, affordable health care, rebuild Colorado’s crumbling roads and bridges, and improve forest health,” the news release reported.

Bennet will answer questions from area residents, elected officials and community leaders.

Bennet, a Gov. Bill Ritter-appointee, is a member of the Senate agriculture, banking, homeland security and aging committees. He will be appearing Tuesday in five communities on the Western Slope.

His day begins with an 8 a.m. appearance at Steamboat Springs City Hall, 124 10th St., and a 10 a.m. visit to Haven Assisted Living, 300 S. Shelton, in Hayden.

After he finishes the town hall meeting in Craig, at noon, the senator will tour the Craig Veterans Affairs Telehealth Clinic, 551 Tucker St.

His day concludes with town hall meetings at 2 p.m. in Meeker and 5 p.m. in Glenwood Springs.
