Congratulations, Rep. Wes McKinley

Congratulations to Rep. Wes McKinley for being selected by the Colorado Farm Bureau, the state’s largest agricultural organization, to receive its 2010 Pinnacle Award. This is the highest award given recognizing one Republican and one Democrat from both the House and Senate for their support on legislation that was vital to the agriculture community, overall commitment to Colorado Agriculture, and their willingness to advocate on behalf of the Industry. Other recipients include Representative Jerry Sonnenberg (R-Sterling), Senator Scott Renfroe (R-Greeley), and Senator Bruce Whitehead (D-Hesperus)

McKinley is running his usual laid-back campaign way down there in the southeast corner of our spacious state (HD64). He’s been out visiting the fairs, parades, and festivals, maybe playing a few tunes here or there. He has always been clear – he is there to represent the people. He generally doesn’t give political speeches. He explains why here:

Update (7/23/10): 
McKinley will be at a Press Conference on the Capitol steps with Dr. LeRoy Moore at 11:00 am., Wednesday, Aug. 4. Dr. Moore will reveal his findings from recent tests near Rocky Flats.

On Thursday, August 5, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, McKinley will attend a fundraiser at The Milwaukee Street Tavern, 2nd and Milwaukee St., free parking behind bldg. – cash bar – appetizers hosted by McKinley. If you haven’t met Wes in person, this is the perfect occasion to do so.
