House of Representatives candidates to meet with voters in Boulder, Larimer County

With Jared Polis vacating his spot as the Colorado’s member of the House of Representatives for the Second District, four are stepping up to take his place. Polis, the Democrat who held the position since 2009, is running in this year’s gubernatorial campaign in Colorado.

The candidates running to replace him will be having a series of events to meet with constituents and discuss the policies they are running on.

With the recent change in state law to allow unaffiliated voters in Colorado to vote in primaries, anyone in the Second Congressional District in Colorado will be able to vote for these candidates in the primary election on June 26.

Fort Collins Forum

Three of those four candidates, Republican Peter Yu and Democrats Mark Williams and Joe Neguse will be at CSU as a part of a forum for voters to be more informed on who they are voting for. The forum will be hosted by former ASCSU President Daniela Pineda-Soraca and current ASCSU Director of Governmental Affairs Anthony Taylor.

The event, co-organized by five different organizations including Fort Collins for Progress, Indivisible NOCO and the Straayer Center for Public Service Leadership, is free to the public, but interested parties are asked to RSVP through the ticket link on the event’s Facebook page.

Boulder Forum

Three days before the forum at CSU, those three candidates and independent candidate Nick Thomas will be at a meet-and-greet in Boulder County the night of Wednesday, April 18 to meet with the constituents who will be voting for them.

All members of the public are invited to attend the event, held at the Altona Grange building in unincorporated Boulder County, where they can freely meet with the candidates on an individual basis and ask them directly about policies.
